Grow It Know It supports this collaboration between the four middle schools of Athens-Clarke County to provide a series of charity dinners, raising funds for important causes in the Athens community. Students, staff and volunteers from all four middle schools prepare and serve a meal. They are assisted by Chef Manny Stone, the culinary arts teacher at the Athens Community Career Academy, and Grow It Know It’s four school gardeners. The produce from the meal is grown by our middle school students in their gardens and by University of Georgia students at the UGArden.
We welcome you to join us and partake in this educational and enjoyable experience. Middle school students gain experience with culinary and other work skills while raising money for a local non-profit organization.
Meals are held at the Athens Community Career Academy, 440 Dearing Extension, Athens, GA 30605. The dates for school year 2017-2018 will be set soon! Please check back in with us.
