13th Avenue Elementary School


Chef Hassan has been working tirelessly to develop an amazing learning environment in the farm room! Along with Ms. Haynes, Chef Hassan assisted in making pizzas topped with fresh greens from the harvest! Ms. Davis from I Have a Dream Foundation has taken specific care that the plants stay fed with vital nutrients. On Monday, March 28th, due to a suspected power failure, they had lost a harvest due to the pump shutting off sometime over the weekend. However, through hard work, the farm has been growing beautiful greens and beautiful inquiring minds!

George Washington Carver/Bruce Street Elementary School


GW Carver and Bruce Street Schools have not stopped working hard to learn best practices to develop great systems with their students. Ms. Bello and Ms. Landskroner have been training their students well. Even though there was some inconsistent growth at the last harvest, they have built a clean the farm and have been taught how to spot clogged nozzles. During the most recent harvest, several students helped to change out nozzles for more even watering.

Central High School


Dr. Kuzma and his classes have excitedly adopted the farms with the students taking on much of the responsibility. In addition to Dr. Kuzma, there are multiple teachers who are working to incorporate the farms into their classes and the program there continues to grow!

Sir Isaac Newton Elementary School


After Spring Break, Ms. Peguero and Mr. Belluardo hit the ground running! Keep those greens growing!

Michelle Obama Elementary School


Students at Michelle Obama Elementary School led different activities around the building with 1st graders in the AeroFarms lab harvesting and packaging for parents! Ms. Sommer has been doing an incredible job with the farm and getting students of all ages involved. She is always eager to learn more and is becoming her own technician!
