I used to live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. When I was back in the old neighborhood 2 weeks ago, I noticed that the local high school had a pretty substantial garden with lots of raised beds. How cool! When I lived in the neighborhood, I didn't remember seeing this garden, so I Googled it to find out more information about the program. I found this article about the the school's program in the NY Times. All the juniors and seniors in the school take a class called "Food, Land, and You" and discuss the social, political and economic aspects of the food industry. They learn about where their food comes from by visiting farms, butcher shops and raise their own food in a 2,500 square foot organic garden in the school yard. How COOL is that? Oh how I wish I had a class like this when I was in high school!
