About PACHS Greenhouse

24

Pedro Albizu Campos High School students work along with our gardener and program director, Abel Fernandez, in the rooftop greenhouse planting and caring for vegetables and herbs all year long. It is the goal to create an orchard of fruit trees to the gardens, which will include apples, peaches, and pears and also  to help the Pedro Albizu Campos High School to integrate ecological agricultural concepts and methods to the science curriculum. With the increase of cultivation, the farmers market will be expanded, with invitation for more vendors. Making the produce affordable through accepting state food subsidies as payment. Helping to increase student impact in the community, the gardener wants to establish entrepreneurship by selling the produce directly to restaurants in Humboldt Park.
