School & Partner Gardens
Bringing kids closer to fresh, healthy, locally grown food.
Launched in 2013, Mill City Grows’ School Garden Program brings gardening and nutrition education to more than 8,000 students each year through in-school, after school, and out-of-school curricula. As dynamic outdoor classrooms, school gardens encourage students to work together to seed, nurture, and grow fresh food, and experience the growing cycle of food from seed to plate. As they tend their gardens and harvest the fresh food they grow, students are encouraged to make healthy food choices and learn core life skills such as teamwork, compassion, curiosity, and love of learning.
