In recent years, students at Valmont Academy in King's Point have been learning about sustainable living and the young learners have really gotten their hands dirty on this subject! Through lessons designed with the Little Green Thumbs program, students have been learning the best conditions to grow certain foods, as well as the care and attention needed to cultivate a harvest. Throughout this experience, school staff and students have also had a lot of help in growing their knowledge... and growing their outdoor learning space, with assistance from the Town of King's Point, the Community Healthy Living Fund and community members. Recently, the local paper the Nor'wester stopped by to check out their community garden and see the fruits of the students' efforts.
