Homeless Shelter Garden in Waterville, ME
Two students at Maine Academy of Natural Sciences, our first charter school, built a tower garden at the Mid Maine Homeless Shelter. The students also planted apple trees and blueberry bushes. Since the students will be graduating in August, their teacher has assigned 2 students to maintain and expand the garden next year. Fresh vegetables and fruits are now available to residents of the shelter, who by request must remain anonymous. The students who developed the project from an idea to a final product feel pride in their ability to help others.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
