The site for the new community school garden at Cambridge-Isanti High School

Cambridge-Isanti High School has been hard at work breaking ground for their community school garden! The school garden is a great place to share in community as well as partner many facets of the school learning together. The garden is to help support produce needs for the Family and Consumer Science (FACS) Department for Cambridge-Isanti High School. Any extra produce is planned to be donated to local food shelves and senior centers. There is also an elementary school group that will learn about growing foods as part of their outdoor classes as well as plans to partner with local summer camps to have mini-junior master learning gardening sessions.
There were many community players that had shovel in hand, we would like to thank these fine folks in their hard works and effort toward a healthier community!
