New grant program helps school gardens grow

Eastern Carver County Schools is excited to launch a new School Garden Grant Program.  Funds for these grants are being generously provided by a community donor.  These grants will expand school gardens in the district and enhance outdoor learning experiences for students. Seven school gardens currently serve as a source of learning for students throughout the district. Teachers from a variety of studies, including science, social studies, and math/engineering often creatively incorporate their school garden into standards-based lesson plans to learn about topics such as life-cycle, germination, the history of the land, and more. Not only do students enjoy the school gardens and have fun taking care of them, but they also walk away with a strong sense of community and environmental stewardship. This sustainable model makes for great learning opportunities. The School Garden Grant Program is open to employees of Eastern Carver County Schools to request funds to create or expand school...
