Burns Park teacher and school garden coordinator Neha Shah says she’s thrilled to receive the $3,000 grant package from Whole Kids Foundation on behalf of Burns Park Elementary’s school garden program.
“We will continue to provide amazing opportunities for our kids to engage in connections to food, land, earth, and biodiversity and our adorable pollinators,” said Shah, referring to bees and butterflies. “We will do this whether it is virtual or in person.”
The Burns Park school garden has become an important part of the school’s community in recent years.
