Our school garden is thriving! It was founded last year as part of a senior Capstone project; since then, the garden has grown significantly and has helped to ignite many students’ thirst to continue their education outside the typical classroom setting. Now, a group of students meets regularly to design, plant, maintain, and learn from the Chanhassen High School garden, but the whole the school community assists with the upkeep of the garden. This past spring, over 200 students volunteered to move eleven yards of garden soil into the 356 square feet of garden space. Adolescent mental health treatment center, Annicca, is helping maintain the garden over the summer.
