THE STORY:

P.S. I54x is a Title one elementary school in the South Bronx. Our school is located in a high poverty area and many of our students live in the neighboring housing projects. In the winter of 2011 P.S. 154x received a garden grant from Grow to Learn. Our school planted five raised garden beds and harvested cucumbers, raspberries, herbs and much more. The garden is a wonderful presence in our urban area and has helped cut back on litter and vandalism on the school grounds. This past school year we expanded the school garden into a outdoor classroom. We did this by mulching the entire front plot, building additional beds and putting in benches. This past summer we built a chicken coop with the help of Just Food. We welcomed 5 wonderful hens in September. The students are so excited and many teachers, parents, and community members are helping with caring for the chickens. This year we hope to build a water catchment system off the chicken coop, build a compost bin and additional raised beds. We have seen what the garden and chickens has added to our school and urban community and hope to keep the positive momentum for years to come.
