Art of sustainable urban agriculture at Marlene Yu Museum



SHREVEPORT, La., August 3, 2016 – The Marlene Yu Museum’s Three Sisters Sustainable Urban Farm Discovery Program, directed by Rebekah White, provides a tangible experience for 2nd grade students from Forest Hill Elementary to learn fundamentals of creating and sustaining our food supply in a harmonious way with nature this fall at the Museum. 

“As a parent and educator, I really like the fact that our kids can come to the Museum and be able to express their love of nature and science through art,” said Cheri Knoebel of Forest Hill Elementary School. 

This project is supported by a grant from The United Way of Northwest Louisiana Grant Fund of The Community Foundation.  This project is also supported by a grant from the International Paper Foundation.
