US: Bruce Randolph School in Denver celebrates farm opening

Bruce Randolph, a high school located on the North side of Denver, is located in the middle of the food desert, with an area that does not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. One Denver school is looking to help.

Bruce Randolph School in Denver is celebrating the opening of a hydroponic farm. It's a collaboration with New York-based Teens For Food Justice. Through the growing of vegetation in a soil-free environment, students are providing fresh food to their community and gaining valuable experience that will lead to career opportunities.

Through a partnership with Teens for Food Justice and a $500,000 Healthy Foods for Denver’s Kids grant in addition to $1.14 million in bond funds approved by Denver voters in November 2020, the school built the soil-less, nutrient-rich farm with an ability to grow 10,000 pounds of food a year.
