Make hands-on school garden education possible at the Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy

Let's build a garden to connect children to healthy food and nature.

The Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy teamed up with us, GROW, to help build and facilitate a new school garden. The students will help design and pick the location of the garden. GROW will help lead the installation and hands-on lessons to provide environmental science and health education. GROW will provide staff support and stability for the garden programming.

Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy is a charter school located in Maple Grove, MN. This school serves 220 students, 95% of which receive free and reduced lunch. 98% of students are of color. We envision giving these children an outdoor learning space that will connect them to healthy food and nature.

Research shows that hands-on garden education is one of the most effective ways in getting children to eat healthier and to try new foods.
