 In 2019, the Shaw neighborhood will be home to a brand new urban resource and education center focused on science education, food production and nutrition, urban sustainability and hands-on-learning. And I couldn’t be more excited. Through the commitments of St. Louis University, The Missouri Botanical Gardens and the Urban Education Alliance District (Tower Grove Christian Academy, Mullanphy Investigative Learning Center, St. Margaret’s of Scotland and St. Louis Language Immersion Charter School), I am thrilled to see such a collaborative partnership—with children and the future of our City being the forefront of this investment. Innovated programs such as urban farming along 1-44 (with the help of MODOT) a teaching lab,greenhouse and food distribution to area schools all make this project incredibly unique to our City and region; a truly altruistic learning tool that gives back to the community through tangible results.
