According to its website, School Yard Roots (the program which manages the school's garden) has a mission to build community through food by increasing access to fresh, locally-grown produce, we empower our community to make healthy and sustainable food choices. The group's dream is that one day every school in Alabama will have a teaching garden.
It plans to make that happen by creating a network of school gardens that will build healthier communities, engage students in learning, and increase access to healthy, sustainably-grown food.
School Yard Roots will host a garden party at the Tuscaloosa River Market on November 11. This event is said to be a community party with delicious, local food prepared by some of Tuscaloosa’s finest restaurants and local farmers, featuring locally brewed beer, local musicians, and a craft-makers’ auction.
