WHAT A TEACHER IS SAYING...

 [A REAL school garden] will give our students an opportunity they would never have in their home environment, as all of them live in apartments. The staff is excited about integrating the garden into science as an outside extended classroom and lab. We believe that adding a green space will give our students hands on experiences and valuable skills that they will use for the rest of their lives."
