Chicago School Sets Healthy Example
E-mail Print

Organically grown fruits and vegetables, daily yoga and a chicken coop.  Not what you would expect to find at a Chicago public school, but the Academy for Global Citizenship is doing something out of the ordinary and hoping that other schools will follow suit.

Each weekday during growing season, the southwest side school serves students students an organic breakfast and lunch, drawing on produce grown in the academy garden. The students help tend the garden as part of an environmental sustainability curriculum.
