Summary: The Environmental Club of Fort Worth ISD’s Polytechnic High School will celebrate the Grand Opening of their Community Garden with a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 12 p.m.
This is a major event for the Poly neighborhood because it marks the first two of three planned phases for this organic community garden. The produce will be utilized by the school’s Culinary Arts program and:
• Increase student awareness of environmental issues.
• Give students the ability to make a change through responsibility, respect, reducing, recycling, and reusing
• Build pride in self, school, community.
"With a culinary arts program at Poly, the work of the Environmental Club, allows our students to utilize fresh vegetables, grown at Poly High School in their culinary creations," said Board of Education Trustee Tobi Jackson. "That's a lesson of teamwork, healthful eating, and community that students can take with them for life."
In addition to Mrs. Jackson, Councilwoman Kelly Allen Gray and former Councilwoman Kathleen Hicks are scheduled to be in attendance.
