CPF’s Learning Gardens Summer Maintenance Interns
Students and teachers are almost always excited for summer, but many with a school garden worry about who will care for it in their absence. Unlike a class pet, you can’t take a garden home for summer! This is where Captain Planet Foundation’s Summer Garden Crew fills the gap. With 5 interns working for 3 months to maintain 58 Metro Atlanta school gardens, CPF is able to rescue the abundant summer produce, donating it to local food banks (over 1,000 lbs this summer!), and leave the gardens looking great for the back-to-school season.
