A real “growing” part of our work is teaching urban young people about basic ecological concepts, principles of nutrition and healthy eating, and skills in environmental stewardship. One instructional method we use is transforming vacant plots of land into garden spaces, with young people as key participants. We have built several raised beds for flowers and vegetables, maintained terraced space in our Dining Hall and Garden Courtyard, and have turned an abandoned baseball field into a thriving community-led farm. Volunteers help our staff and students at key points during the growing season, when the planting or harvesting requires more hands. We supply all necessary tools and materials.
