Big things can grow from a mini grant!

Pinon kindergarten received a mini grant last fall for their garden.  They used the funding to make a few improvements including weed barrier, raised beds and mulch making this spring’s planting and maintenance a much easier task.  Look at the amazing results. 


“On behalf of the Los Alamos Public Schools students and staff, THANK YOU!  The Foundation is a wonderful partner in education and is helping meet essential needs in our schools.”–Dr. Kurt Steinhaus, Superintendent, Los Alamos Public Schools
