Presenters included Nissa Patterson from Growing Gardens Team, May Erwin (science department from Wilson Middle School, two students from South Valley Academy Service Learning Program, Andrew Marcum (UNM Research Service Learning), and Richard Brandt (Youth Food Action Project director). The presentation stressed the importance and benefits of using school gardens as educational tools in the classroom.
