Billingsville Leadership Academy Recognized for The Ultimate Schoolyard Garden

Check out the April Issue of Myers Park Life Neighborhood News to read about the successful schoolyard garden at Billingsville! Students in the WATCH US GROW summer session planted, weeded, harvested and learned to prepare fresh vegetables.  The student garden club meets throughout the year to plant and maintain the garden which is also a focus of art.  During this year’s Southern Spring Show in February, students participating in the after-school program built birdhouses and a mural for the Ultimate Schoolyard Garden exhibit. The garden also involves students in service-learning as they donate a portion of the produce they raise to Friendship Gardens/Friendship Trays.  Read more about this successful and innovative partnership between Billingsville and various community partners through the links to the article below.
