YFMP Helps Build a New Farm at Jackson Elementary in Frogtown

Last Saturday, community members in Frogtown, master gardeners, youth from the Wilder Foundation’s Youth Leadership Initiative, and staff from Jackson Preparatory Magnet built a new garden in the neighborhood.  Volunteers worked hard to build eight new 4′x12′ raised beds at the school.  Jackson students will plant the new garden this spring with a variety of crops including collard greens, herbs, corn, tomatoes, and peppers.

Frogtown youth fill a garden bed with dirt.
