This grant is an extension of a project that was started last spring to combat poor nutrition. The students planted young plants, nurtured and harvested a variety of vegetables. Now they will install a small greenhouse which will allow students to raise their plants from seed, adding to their knowledge of the growth cycle of plants. The areas of academic growth in science and math are addressed in this project.
