Randolph CTC & Drew students work together to make raised Garden Beds

During DPS Go Green Week, Donald Carter, DPS Garden Bed Project Supervisor, and Mark Knight, Carpentry Teacher, worked with students from both Randolph Career and Technical Center and Drew Transition Center on constructing raised Garden Beds.

As part of the Detroit School Garden Collaborative, sponsored by the DPS Office of School Nutrition, over 40 school sites across the district have raised garden beds, rain water collection systems, gravel walkways and training centers.

The goal of the Garden Collaborative program is to increase access to healthy foods for all students, improve nutrition and reduce childhood obesity, increase the nutrient density of school meals and establish school-based gardens.
