Southwood Elementary School, Kentwood Public Schools
We have a partnership with the students and teachers of Southwood Elementary School in Kentwood. Our members go out to the school and teach the students about square foot gardening and also about pollinator gardens. The students seem to love it! They get to taste the results of their labor, get some fresh air and have fun!
