Why: Ford Road Elementary has partnered with Whole Foods and the U.S. Green Building Council – Memphis Regional Chapter to break ground on the school's new teaching garden. Teaching gardens are real-life learning laboratories where students will learn what it means to be healthy – where their food comes from, how it's produced, and how eating fresh produce improves health.
