School Garden Project

The Slow Food WISE Learning Garden at Maryland Avenue Montessori, an MPS school on Milwaukee’s East Side, was planted 2012 by the students along with the help of parents and Slow Food volunteers.

The raised gardens, which were built in 2011, stand on asphalt adding some much appreciated green space to the school grounds. The gardens, which use principles from “square-foot gardening,” give the kids an opportunity to connect with nature but also to apply skills in measurement and planning.

A garden takes a lot of tending, and there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer.  Contact us at  if you would like to contribute your time, energy or talent in anyway to school gardens projects.
