First Phase of New JPS Learning Garden is Complete

Category: Parent Points

Over the past couple of months, hundreds of volunteers and students have worked hard to create a learning garden for Blackburn Laboratory Middle School. Phase I of the garden is complete.

Students from Blackburn Laboratory Middle School have worked alongside students from Jackson State University and volunteers from several Greek organizations, school Parent Teacher Association members, and community supporters to build flower beds, paint signs, pick up trash and plant flowers at a vacant lot across from the school on West Pearl Street.

Students from Blackburn and Jackson State will monitor and maintain the upkeep of the new garden. The lots were purchased by JSU and donated to Blackburn for the student garden. Mississippi Roadmap to Health Equity, Waste Management, and Keep Jackson Beautiful were major contributors to this project.
