The Problem

Educating and introducing inner city youth to the value of organic gardening.

Our Plan

ACTION: Students at the fifth and sixth grade level introduced to planting and nurturing seeds, prior to outdoor planting and care. Plant maintenance throughout the summer months by students enrolled in the summer program. Produce harvested in the fall by current intermediate students. A fall harvest celebration held that include students using cross-curricular activities to predict, infer, measure, design and weigh produce.
