Solar Power and Community Partnerships Keep a  School Garden Growing

ALEXANDRIA, VA - On March 30-31, 2019, the Hollin Meadows Elementary School (HMES) Outdoor Education Program will launch a multiphase development plan reestablishing the school’s Learning Production Garden by building raised garden beds and installing a solar-powered drip irrigation system using a $5000 grant from Index Analytics, LLC, a data analytics and program management consulting firm. These will be the first of many projects resulting from collaborations between an engaged community, public schools and private businesses supporting the Outdoor Education Program at HMES.
