Ridgeland High School (Ridgeland, Miss.) student gardens flourish!

Ridgeland High School teachers, led by Ms. Gabrielle Mills, launched a school garden program this semester. Keep Ridgeland Beautiful partnered with the school to provide some supplies and support. The school gardens raised beds flourished. Over 100 students were involved with the gardens last semester. Greens, lettuces, zinnias, cosmos, pansies, broccoli and even tomatoes were part of the fall crop. Beautiful, serene, and a living laboratory, these students created a space to learn to grow and they did, in so many ways!
