EDINA, Minn. - At Countryside Elementary in Edina they started a project at the end of May that has been growing ever since!

They wanted to add a vegetable garden for many reasons and in literally one day they had this amazing garden thanks to a design by the Gronomics Company.

Financial support was provided by donations to Countryside, former staff members, current parents and the graduating 5th grade class, along with the Countryside PTO. Megan Ulland, a Countryside parent, helped with planning, guidance and volunteering to build it.

Donations of assistance, seeds, plants and equipment were very much appreciated by the school and the garden will be a great place for the students to learn about plants, about soil, about where their food comes from and also about the issue of hunger in our community and around the world.

Great job to everyone involved in this beautiful garden.
