Wheatley’s School-Within-A-School is a democratic, student-run learning community that provides innovative learning and leadership opportunities for students. Several years ago, SWS began a garden unit and created plant beds for organic farming. As part of this year’s Day of Service and Learning, students harvested the vegetables from the existing beds, cleaned them out and then upgraded them with the help of the industrial technology program. Thanks to Pat Clarke, Tom Storck, Andrew Ardito and Angel Rivero for leading a terrific group of students on this project.
