League School Receives Grant from the Ed Walsh Foundation to Support Garden Program


The League School of Greater Boston announces that the school has received a grant from the Ed Walsh Foundation. The grant will help the school continue its gardening program for students. 

The school learned of the grant reward last month. The Ed Walsh Foundation previously supported League School’s outdoor learning and playground project.

Grants such as this are critical in helping the school sustain its popular gardening program. Getting outdoors and engaging in meaningful, hands-on learning is very important to what League School does, and one of the best examples of this is the work students do at both the on-campus garden space and the Abundance Garden located at nearby Norfolk Agricultural High School.

At both spaces students learn about the gardening process, planting and harvesting their own crops, and more. Students also turn their freshly-grown produce into foods like salsa and tomato sauce, teaching them about the importance of eating hand-grown vegetables and making healthy choices around portion control when eating.


If you would like to support the League School’s gardening program, visit and give an amount of your choosing. Donations can be directed to the garden program.
