Urban Agriculture and Community Building
On Thursday, October 27th Students from Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School and Roberto Clemente Community Academy collaborated in an educational project in the community. With the strong support of Principal Sorenson, the two schools came together to beautify the neighborhood with winter hearty plants in Paseo Boricua’s twenty-eight planters that line Division Street.
Getting their hands dirty, the students and staff worked very hard on that cold day, leaving signs in each of the planters to communicate to the community our schools’ and our students’ commitment to taking responsibility for the wellbeing of our community.
Business owners and community residents saw the students with their respective school regalia and made comments like: “That is awesome work”, “Estoy alegre para ver los estudiantes trabajando en la comunidad”, and “Thank you so much for your hard work”.
The students of our school were proud to have participated in this community building activity and look forward to future collaborations with Roberto Clemente.
