Students at Ninth District Elementary School celebrated Earth Day in a big way.
On Thursday, the new Calm Mind Community Garden was unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the school. The new garden is made possible through the collaboration between Covington Partners and Calm Mind Foundation and grant funds from Kentucky Out-of-School Alliance. Plant and seed donations were provided by Sage + Garden.
The garden will act not only as a science lab but also as a mindfulness center for students by promoting social-emotional learning. Bird feeders, binoculars and butterflies will soon be added to the garden.
