Maple Grove charter school Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy (MELA) students and supporters recently planted their new education garden. 

MELA teamed up with GROW, a nonprofit which helps build and educate in school gardens. GROW is a nonprofit whose mission is connect children to healthy food and nature through school gardens and farm experiences.  

Students in grades pre-K through 5 helped design and pick a location for the new garden. 

The Church of the Open Door, which shares a building with the school, plans to help with some of the installation, maintenance and utilize the garden during the summer months.
