In this 6 week class, students will learn to plant, grow, and harvest their own produce! In addition to tending to the garden, the program also includes a visual art project to beautify the space, a site visit to Urban Roots on July 30, as well as a culinary arts lesson in which students will use what they’ve grown to assemble a seasonal recipe. On September 10, students are invited to celebrate the season at our annual Community Harvest Party, from 5-6:30pm at the Carrier Street Garden.
Artists Creating Together empowers individuals with disabilities to learn, grow, and celebrate through the arts. By bringing together artists, visual and performing arts, and students with disabilities, we are able to make an impact on the West Michigan community. Last year, we were able to help over 6,000 individuals celebrate, succeed and grow through the arts.
