Healthy Kids, Healthy Schools
GrowNYC formed a partnership with Wagner MS in Manhattan called Healthy Kids, Healthy Schools, funded by NYC Council Member Jessica Lappin. Under one roof, we are programming seven discrete GrowNYC programs: Learn It Grow It Eat It, Grow to Learn School Gardens, Greenmarket Youth Education, Recycling Champions, Youthmarket, Open Space Greening, and Environmental Education. For an entire year, our staff is educating young people about how to lead lives that improve their personal health and that of the environment around them; so that eating, growing, learning, and going green become second nature. Programming includes pop-up farm stands for families, cafeteria recycling roll-outs, pizza box solar ovens, and more.
