A Greenhouse Grows in the Bronx

My Students

Do you remember how much you learned in science by experiencing growing things in science class? You can help kids from the city learn by doing, seeing and feeling the world around them.

My students are all Title 1 (they are disadvantaged with money and experience) living in the Bronx, New York.

One way to level the playing field is to give them the experience of learning by doing. My kids are already creating their own garden in the courtyard of our city school and it would make a world of difference if we could extend our ability to grown and experience the earth with green houses. My kids overcome the language barrier and are constantly involved in community service activities. They care about themselves and the world and are hungry to learn. What they need is the same type of experiential learning opportunities that exist outside of their neighborhood.

My Project

The students will grow organic seeds flowers and vegetables in indoor grow-carts which we already possess. These will be transferred to the green houses and then eventually outside. Students will learn about the growth of plants, the importance of nutrients and the cycle of nature. When combined with our composting program and our programs that develop health and a sense of food justice this purchase will develop a lifelong understanding about the importance of science for our student body. These greenhouses will create a lasting program that can be used with all of our subjects.

The donations will make our students lives better by helping them to understand the world around them, and do better on the state tests.

In addition our students will gain a lifelong appreciation of health and the world around them while simultaneously enjoying learning more.
