MSHS donates raised-bed garden kits to schools and community groups




The Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is donating raised-bed garden kits to community groups and schools supporting low-income families and children. MSHS’ Garden-in-a-Box program provides kits that include a 3’ x 4’ fabric raised-bed garden box, soil, and vegetable plants.
