P.S. 106, where I went to elementary school, had a nicely laid out garden on the other side of a chain link fence separating it from the school yard. It had concrete paths defining the planting beds--even benches with a canopy for relaxing. We worked there growing vegetables (I don't know if it was voluntary, like a club, or it was an assignment). Under the direction of a Mr. Green (no joke), I grew Swiss chard which I was allowed to bring home.
In retrospect, it was a valuable experience (I still grow chard today!). Did your Bronx elementary school have a garden where students could have the rich experience of growing things?
