Portland Public Schools Has Approved the GHS Learning Garden!

Great news: Portland Public Schools has just approved the Grant Gardens team’s proposal for a school learning garden! As you may know, yields from the garden will be prepared and served in the Grant cafeteria, which provides 10 free or reduced-price meals each week to some of the the school’s most impoverished students. The garden will be maintained by students from Grant’s “Intro to Sustainable Agriculture” class and the Special Education Department during the school year, and by various gleaner nonprofits over summer vacation. We celebrate this news, and look forward to being assigned a PPS site manager, who will aid the garden team in establishing the garden. Check back soon — there will will be much more news to come!
