“"Grammar in the Greenhouse" allows English language learners to grow in SEL, enhance their academic skills, participate in urban gardening, develop healthy nutrition habits, share the harvest with families, visit libraries, science centers, colleges, museums, galleries, gardens, county fairs, organizations and events in the city and the state and thus become part of the local community and responsible citizens of their new home country.”
