The result of last spring's project based learning venture in the Middle School was a successful vegetable garden on the south side of the gym. The yield of tomatoes, cucumbers, and other tasty vegetables was more than the summer faculty and staff could use, so Jane Schock (who we like to refer to as our resident gardener) figured out what to do with the extra bounty. The veggies were added to those from the Glencoe Community Garden and then passed along to Chicago homeless shelters, La Casa Norte Mission and Breakthough Urban Ministries. Our Middle School garden provided healthy, organic food for people who are struggling to get back on their feet. Well done, Ms. Schock and students!
