In fall 2014, Youth Farm partnered with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) Culinary and Nutrition Services to conduct a School Garden Survey with all Minneapolis Public Schools. We are excited to share the results of this survey, which help to identify the current landscape of school gardens in the district and the areas that need the most support.
Read the summary to see data, quotes, and photos from several school gardens in the district. The results demonstrate widespread interest in and support for school gardens throughout the district. We look forward to growing our partnership with MPS Culinary and Nutrition Services to support school gardens and create opportunities for food, farming, and nutrition-based education.
Here’s the link to the summary: 2014-15 MPS School Garden Summary (pdf)
