Partnerships For Schools

Kids Gardening at School

The Sustainable Schoolyard Partnership (SSP) is a multi-partner, statewide initiative available to Nebraska elementary, middle, and high schools. It has been designed to improve the sustainability, ecological quality, and learning opportunities of school grounds.  Funds may still be available for landscape projects on a rolling basis.
