CitySprouts Garden

citysprouts gardenThe rooftop garden at the MLK School is the first intentionally designed learning garden to be included in Cambridge Public Schools new school building construction. The rooftop garden is accessible through the library and hallway, and includes raised beds, tool storage, compost bin and an outdoor sink for cleaning vegetables. Solar panels above the garden offer shade to the young gardeners while also providing solar energy to the school. The garden has a digging bed, sensory bed, vegetables, pollinators, and herbs.

citysprouts gardenCitySprouts is a school garden program founded on the principle that all children should experience hands-on learning with real-world applications, support and practice in making good food choices, and a life-long connection to the natural world. CitySprouts’ garden educator is at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. school twice each week during the fall and spring to support teachers' lessons and projects in the school garden. CitySprouts has volunteer opportunities in the garden throughout the year, if you would like to get involved please email [email protected].
