Students Build a Sustainable Community Garden Thanks to Home Depot’s Community Foundations Grant
Howell, MI: Students at Livingston ESA are cultivating their agricultural skills with hands-on learning experience planning and planting a sustainable community garden and continuing its upkeep.
In addition to what they learned while planning and planting the garden and continuing its upkeep, students in our W-A-Y+ Program will also gain volunteer experience. As the garden prospers, students will work with local organizations to distribute the fresh produce to community members in need.
Ted Kroll, Director of the W-A-Y+ Program, said, “Students from all of the Agency’s programs – not just students in the W-A-Y+ Program – and staff will have an will have the opportunity to experience working in a garden and learning agricultural skills – and perhaps kindle an interest in creating their own sustainable garden.”
