The Center renews sublease for greenhouse

The Center (of Brainerd MN) renewed its sublease with the Brainerd School District for $1 for the green house at the ISD 181 school board meeting November 13 2019. Kathy Tusa and Nick Reindl spoke to the school board.
They use the green house for their plant sale they have annually. 5000 plants are started in green house for The Center plant sale including tomatoes, carrots and other plants.
More than half of annual budget (about 60%) for The Center (Brainerd) comes from from fundraisers. The 3 day plant sale they have each year is the 2nd biggest fundraiser of the year (the biggest once a year fundraiser) after donut sales (a weekly fundraiser). The Center supports life long learning.
The greenhouse is leased to the Brainerd school district from Crow Wing County and the school district subleases to The Center.
