Bethel University has been partnering with the Frogtown/Summit-University area of St. Paul for 12 years, providing early childhood education through a Bethel-owned preschool, offering tutoring and mentoring at Frogtown/Summit-U sites, sending students on service learning assignments, and even offering courses in the area through Bethel’s College of Adult & Professional Studies. This summer, 7 Bethel College of Arts & Sciences students are spending 12 weeks serving in Frogtown/Summit-U. Read about them and their works in the community on Bethel’s News & Events page.

Peace Pole Video

Troop 51195’s sixth video featuring the planting of the Peace Pole Gardens in several St. Paul neighborhoods. From the girls of the Troop:

We designed and planned a specific garden at the Ramsey County Yard Waste sites of Midway, Frank & Sims, Summit Hill and Battle Creek. Melvin Giles taught us a Peace Pole chant and we did it after planting each garden. We also blew Peace Bubbles which were from Melvin – cool! We love our gardens.
