The Lawrence High School Garden

At Lawrence High School, the LHS Prep students are building a garden – literally reshaping the land. To give you perspective – the garden is 5,000 square feet in size (50’ x 100’). It’s big enough to be a successful vendor at a farmers market with a serious bounty. Students in the LHS Prep unit are typically 16-22 years of age, and are identified with special needs for education. And, truth be told – I’m impressed by these budding green thumbs (students and teachers alike). We’ve yet to harvest a crop together – but they’ve proven to be hard workers and they can learn anything.

Urban Archaeology Summer 2016

This summer, in collaboration with the National Park Service, Groundwork Lawrence will add a new and exciting program to our ranks! The Urban Archaeology Corps (UAC) is an innovative project that will engage 8 Lawrence young adults, ages 16 - 24 in exploring urban cultural heritage and archaeology within the National Park Service and the Greater Lawrence community. This new program not only provides five weeks of paid work for Lawrence young adults but also provides hands-on professional training and exploration of archaeology as a career.

Snow on the first Monday of spring in 2016? Goodness gracious, doesn’t the weather know how busy we are here at Groundwork Lawrence.

This spring, we are so excited to have a variety of FREE classes for the public to take! We just had an incredibly popular cooking class where we invited budding chefs to share, learn, and create something marvelous! (Next one is on April 16- paella!)
