Here is a photo of the inimitable Ms. Maura Flanagan from 373K being interviewed for the film. Check out her aquaponics set-up in the background and seed saving station in the foreground. Now, this is what a green classroom looks like! Maura, filming

Check out this new film that profiles two of our PLG schools and their incredible stories. Here is the link to the film and a short blurb about it. Enjoy!

Plant, Learn, Grow is a profile of two schools in New York City located in “Food Deserts,” areas where it is difficult to find fresh, healthy produce. One school is located in the South Bronx, and one school in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The students deal with more than lack of healthy food. They are challenged with intellectual, communication, and emotional issues. This is the story of the gardens they built, the food they grew, and the impact this rich harvest had on the students and their communities.

Here are some photos from the 373K garden. You can see the new greenhouse being constructed and some beds being prepared for spring planting. Some plants from last year have already come back up, including everybody’s favorite– strawberries!

The PLG 101 Workshop met at 373K. As you can see, there is nothing contrary about this garden! Thank you Maura Flanagan for showing us your students’ green thumbs!

Thanks Maura Flanagan!
