Schnucks partners in donation of Learning Garden

Representatives from the Schnucks, Dole Packaged Foods and the Captain Planet Foundation visited the Biome School school on Thursday, April 11 to announce the donation of a Learning Garden.

The Project Learning Garden program provides a context for multidisciplinary learning, ranging from nutrition and science to social studies, math and language arts.

Students benefit by expanding their palates, taste-testing healthy foods, and learning about food origins. They engage in authentic science field investigations and manipulate the environment to understand math in real-life applications.

The Captain Planet Foundation is a grant-making foundation that has funded over 2,000 hands-on environmental education projects with schools and non-profits that serve children in all 50 U.S. states and in 23 countries internationally.
