Horticulture Students Pay it Forward, Donate Harvest to Community
This school year, horticulture students at Geneva High School have been living the District’s vision in more ways than one. Not only have they cultivated their complex, creative-thinking skills during their time growing crops in the school’s greenhouse, but they also are becoming productive citizens and giving back to the community.  

Using materials that were received through a Geneva Academic Foundation grant and local donations from FONA and Ball Seed, the students have grown lettuce, greens and other herbs, and returned the donations back to the local community. 

The student-grown greenhouse crops have been used in the school’s foods classes and for banquets they have hosted. The group also donated more than 750 lbs. of lettuce to Northern Illinois Food Bank, according to science teacher Jason Lesatz.  

“We will continue to foster these relationships,” he said, “and hopefully build other community relationships as we keep moving forward with this project next year.”
