EXPO Edible Landscape group receives 'Golden Beet Award'
The EXPO Edible Landscape group received a 2014 Harvest Campaign “Golden Beet Award” for its part in contributing toward 121,484 pounds of fresh, local produce received during this fall’s Minnesota Food Share campaign.

The Hallie Q. Brown Community Center food shelf, one of the two community organizations that receive vegetable donations from EXPO’s garden, nominated the school for the award.

The EXPO Edible Landscape group is comprised of EXPO parents who work with the school’s science teachers to plant and harvest the gardens at EXPO. The science teachers use the garden in conjunction with second grade science curriculum. Students also plant and harvest items in the garden as they learn about life and earth science.
