Todd J. Bard "Gardener in Residence" and President of EvanLEE Organics in Feeding Hills, Ma, will be assisting students at STRIVE Programs. High school and transitional students will learn how to setup EvanLEE Organic growth systems and produce, prepare, and sell delicious healthy food. High School and transitional students will "get their hands dirty" experiencing the cycle of planting, growing, harvesting, composting, and then beginning the process again. These students will also experience the benefits of all their efforts through team work, camaraderie, and the acquisition of valuable vocational skills.
