South Philadelphia High School

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Land Beautification and Cultivation
Budget: $2245

South Philadelphia High School serves 700 students, grades 9‐12 in Philadelphia. The school’s student population has grown up with restricted access to open space and fresh food.

Our Green Plan: Create a youth‐led growing program making use of current vacant space in the school’s parking lot, as well as an underutilized greenhouse within the school. Students will work with an after‐school program coordinator to design a growing plan for the year that would include fruits and vegetables that reflect the diversity of the school’s community. Students will share what they’ve learned with their fellow students through presentations and tastings, and the end of the growing season will be celebrated with a family potluck that will showcase the students’ hard work and the cuisines of their cultures.
