Camp Wisdom Foundation

We are a nonprofit organization that supports elementary school children in Jackson, Mississippi. Our 10,000 square foot Wisdom Garden was implemented as a teaching garden. With 88% of the school student of free and reduced lunch the need was clear. It is also part of the plan to bring nutritional educational, plant based learning, hands on science and math, fitness, social skills and free produce to the children who attend the Spann Elementary School, The Wisdom Academy, an out-of-school time program and Camp Wisdom summer camp. The garden, is a wonderful teaching tool, but has become a community healer as well. Neighbors who had been estranged from the Spann School, and whose children all attend private schools, have become reengaged with the school through the Wisdom Garden. We have also been able to feed the elderly in the neighborhood, give to the local Gleaners Association and to the St. Vincent DePaul for their home deliveries to the needy. We are very proud of what a 10,000 square foot has brought to our students and our community!
