CIS Phoenix Academy Students are Learning Gardening and Sustainability


Choose Success project,

"A Taste of Life: Healthy Habits and Healthy Minds" was created to teach the students that gardening can inspire you to take an interest in the origin of your food and can help with making better choices about what you put on your plate.

Phoenix Academy Site Coordinator, Ms. Mullins says, “Gardening offers many opportunities to improve one's life by providing an indoor or outdoor experience and exercise and an excellent time to relax and engage with others.”

During the next phase of the project, students will get to visit a master gardener's site, Souper Jenny's in West Midtown to attend a workshop and training from a master gardener. Thank you, Ms. Mullins, for creating this great opportunity for students to learn about the origins of food and how to eat healthily to achieve great health.
