Urban Garden and Education for Sustainability
E-mail Print

The Devington urban garden -- the brainchild of organizer Naeemah Jackson -- is a 5-acre plot on the Far-Eastside where middle school and high school students come together. Here, they not only learn about gardening, sustainability and nutrition but also make connections to their community and sharpen their life skills -- knowledge and experience that experts say is also important in succeeding in the classroom.
