Did you know that MPS has over 30 school gardens in our district?

School gardens are a fantastic way to bring more hands-on learning to Minneapolis schools! The gardens serve as a fun and exciting place to bring what kids are learning in their classrooms and translate it into tangible experiences. The gardens also provide schools with a great resource for teaching agriculture and nutrition education.

No two gardens are the same! Schools are able to tailor their gardens to meet the needs of their students, staff, and community. Are you interested in learning more about MPS school gardens? Send us an email
