Watch the video to find out why one student describes their school garden as "the best project we've ever done."
Students at Arbor View High School in Las Vegas, led by teacher Daniel Wheelock, turned an empty lot into a school garden last year with a Nature Works Everywhere grant from the Conservancy. They’re using this year’s grant to grow local produce for use in the school’s culinary program and to sell at a community market.
The project is about a lot more than just fresh food. Connecting people with nature is at the core of The Nature Conservancy in Nevada's work to build healthy cities. As more people understand how important nature is for our everyday lives—fresh food, fresh air, fresh water, and more—we hope to inspire them to take action to protect it.
