Historical Information
The Environmental Club at Grant High School took the initiative to build a community garden on the school's property. Their inspiration for the garden came from a desire to give back to the local community, provide fresh produce from the garden to be served in the school cafeteria, and learn about sustainable agriculture.

The students received a grant from State Farm and partnered with PP&R to make the garden a reality. They enlisted the help of GreenWorks to create a design for the garden that was aesthetically pleasing, included two ADA accessible plots, and maximized available garden space.
