Last week, the Middle School took field trips to follow up on the Interdisciplinary Food Justice Unit they had in January. The students chose one of four trips to attend: Wheelhouse Detroit enabled students to ride bikes on a tour of different food initiatives in Detroit - They went to some urban farms and the Heidelberg project and talked about Detroit and land use. Deeply Rooted is a zero waste, health education Mobile Grocery Store that they learned about; Keep Growing Detroit's mission is to cultivate a food sovereign city where the majority of fruits and vegetables consumed by Detroiters are grown by residents within the city limits and Oakland Avenue Farms is a place where cultivating healthy foods, jobs, and active cultural spaces in Detroit's North End. Many students had the opportunity to learn about food initiatives and helped in gardening projects.
Educating and inspiring gifted students to think as individuals and to engage as a community with compassion for each other and this world.
