KIPP Summit Academy,

“The purpose of this [garden] club is to introduce urban students to gardening practices, sustainable living, recycling and composting. We at KSA believe that, if students grow it, they will eat it! This means that gardening creates a pathway to more nutritious living, as well.” Stacey Adams, Teacher

Our Story

KIPP Summit Academy recently started a small gardening club for 5th and 6th graders. ?With the help of students and staff, KSA’s gardening club will work to beautify our campus, build knowledge and skills, and ultimately grow to live a more healthful life. We will also work to significantly reduce the amount of waste that goes into garbage cans at school!
