Path to College starts at Wege Farm

Peter M. Wege’s beloved Lowell farm is the setting for this inspiring video of an environmental and educational program The Wege Foundation started three years ago for Grand Rapids Public School students. Partnering with Aquinas, Calvin, and Hope, the Foundation aims to introduce these GRPS high schoolers to colleges as they interact at the farm with students from these three area schools. The GRPS students also visit these college campuses in the hopes that those who had not considered going on to school might change their minds. It’s a video worth watching!
