Cully Neighborhood Farm receives grant for garden education program

Cully Neighborhood Farm, in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Concordia University, and the North East Emergency Food Bank is pleased to announce being rewarded a grant funded by East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District. The grant funds will sponsor the construction of a learning garden for students at Trinity Lutheran Church who would not normally have access to a garden. The program will use a curriculum called “Life Lab” developed in Santa Cruz, CA public schools and at the UC Santa Cruz Center for AgroEcology . This curriculum will be taught to interested teaching students at Concordia and will culminate in bi-weekly outdoor classroom segments in Trinity Lutheran Church School’s science classes.
