About this Grantee

Collaborating with the University of Louisiana, Ms. Roberts and Ms. McKinley use a horticulture project to increase the mathematics and science skills of their at-risk students. Students participate in workshops that are led by university professors and local gardeners, and research and choose plants that are suitable for their climate and region. Students conduct experiments and collect data on their garden and sell their products at a local farmers’ market.
