SCHOOL GARDEN

Loring Community School Garden and Kids Cook Program

HOW WOULD YOU USE THIS GRANT TO HELP YOUR COMMUNITY?

The Loring garden program is run by community volunteers and relies solely on donations. It’s a comprehensive learning experience for K-5 grades at Loring Community School in N. Minneapolis. The garden provides hands on learning in preparing garden beds, planting, nurturing plant growth, harvesting and cooking fresh meals. Every spring, all classrooms focus on planting the garden. During the summer, families continue the garden care and share their progress in bi-weekly gatherings featuring cooking with current harvests. Each fall, students continue to harvest and cook with available food in the garden. This spring, Loring is proud to be the first school in the district to house beehives on school grounds! Along with Pollinate MN, we will teach the environmental importance and benefits of honey bees and add to the well-rounded education of gardening at all stages. This grant will help secure funding for the beehive project costs, along with replenishing garden equipment and resources.
