Students will be able to serve their community by creating a physical change in the neighborhood space they have chosen. Students will develop specific skills and experience throughout the year that will then be applied through action in their community. By collaborating with their team, gathering information from experts, and executing a plan of action students will develop a sense of place in their community through the garden that they have created and will help to maintain.
