About this Grantee

To enhance the literacy and science skills of their sixth- and seventh-grade students, Ms. Stenger and Ms. Turner design a collaborative school garden project. Students read a story about an urban garden that instills hope and community, and then create books and quilts based on one of the story’s characters. Students also plan and plant their own school garden, and engage in experiments to learn about horticulture.
