Ground Works Midwest will be assisting with the planting of schoolyard gardens at McGovern Middle School next Thursday, May 12.

The middle school students helped build, place, and fill nine garden beds in the front of the school building last May. Students will be helping plant the beds after having worked and prepped the soil earlier in the week.

The gardens will provide students with hands-on experiences, healthy eating ideas, and the opportunity to learn about agriculture.
