Growing food and minds in one Denver classroom

Inside a classroom in a Denver school, there is much more than desks, white boards, students, and teachers. An entire hydroponic farm is growing alongside the minds of teenagers at Bruce Randolph School. Bruce Randolph school serves sixth through twelfth grades in the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, Cole, and Whittier neighborhoods in Denver. Named after "Daddy" Bruce Randolph, the school aims to carry on his work to help feed and serve those in need.

"Our school's mission is to give back and for our students to be positive contributors to their community," said Melissa Boyd, the school's principal. "This is one amazing way that they can do this over and over again, not just on one day and for one community service project."
