Global Gardens is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering students and communities through hands on-science education. The organization believes helping students create a garden is a way to not only assist them in learning about science, health and the environment but also challenge them to become caring, forward thinking and confident individuals. Global Gardens is committed to planting seeds of change!
The program is a voluntary, after-school program at Rosa Parks in which two groups of students meet on a weekly basis after school to learn about the environment and gardens and apply what they have learned to a real garden. On Fridays, the students from the groups can invite family members and friends to view their plot and see its progress.
QuikTrip, whose headquarters are adjacent to the school property line, has helped Rosa Parks spruce up the garden over the past few years a "day of caring" in September.
