Iles School (Springfield, IL)

Iles School is in an inner city, urban area of Springfield, IL. Our 465 students come from all over the city. A community garden teaches students service, ecology, sustainable development, and planning and research skills. Students will be involved in research and study about best practices, garden upkeep, nutrition-associated education, after school activities, tasting/cooking demonstrations, or garden clubs. “We Take Charge” is about coming together to use our actions and imaginations to help our dreams of a greener, more sustainable planet come true. GenHKids, the neighborhood (church) and Iles School hope to create a nutritional food source in a “food desert” area. The neighborhood component secures summer garden tending.
