The Victory Garden Planting Day is a part of Crossroads School & Vocational Center's (CSVC) curriculum to reach at-risk youth through hands-on education strategies in partnership with the University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardeners. CSVC teachers and Master Gardeners spoke at the Schoolyard Garden Conference on March 2 on their success of reaching at-risk youth in understanding agricultural concepts, such as hydroponics, through their mentorship program. CSVC's Victory Garden successful program has been featured in the Fall 2017 issue of Source and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture newsletter.
