Participating Schools

This was one of the best orchestrated classroom opportunities I have witnessed.

This year, WITS started working with schools in the New Settlement. In Ms. St. Leger’s 7th grade class, green came into students’ lives! The children and adults alike were overjoyed to be given seedlings and a box of basil and butter lettuce plugs from Donor Chef Partner Gotham Greens. WITS Chef Kent used the seedlings in his classes and then students got to work. Here, they made Sub-irrigated Planters — a self-watering garden that keeps the soil consistently moist — out of used disposable water bottles. We love the creativity and are looking forward to fostering more green projects at the New Settlement schools!
