MRH Middle School Honored for Contributions to Gardening
Before a crowd of 150 devoted gardeners on a humid evening in Ladue, MRH Middle School principal Mike Dittrich accepted the Garden Club of America's Civic Improvement Commendation.
MRHMS champions sustainability and green practices by incorporating gardening, beehives, rain gardens, aquaponics, chickens and composting into its curriculum. In January, Dittrich addressed the Garden Club's members and made such an impression, he was nominated for their Commendation.
At the Tuesday ceremony, Dittrich was quick to thank his students and staff for embracing environmentalism and conservation. The event took place at the elaborately landscaped residence of Doug and Suzy Brauer.
Founded in 1913, The Garden Club of America is a volunteer nonprofit organization comprising 201 member clubs and approximately 18,000 club members throughout the country. GCA members devote their energies and expertise to a wide array of projects in their communities and across the nation.
