The IB Class of 2018 helped “Keep Growing Detroit” and students at Mayburn Elementary for its October CAS (Creativity-Activity-Service) project.
Keep Growing Detroit, a non-profit organization, promotes growing fruits and vegetables within the city limits for residents’ consumption, addressing the immediate needs of the community while promoting sustainable change in our food system. DLS students helped harvest and winterize the farm.
At Maybury Elementary in Southwest Detroit, students worked with second and third graders, helping students create life-sized murals of what they wanted to be for Halloween. The day gave the DLS students the opportunity to interact outside of their norm.
