Michigan High School Students Claire & Serena Create A Mobile Organic Gardening Classroom

Foto: High School Students Create Mobile Organic Garden to Teach Local Kids about gardening: Claire Erwin and Serena Bian of Cranbrook High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, created the ‘GARDEN ON THE GO’ mobile organic garden as summer project to teach kids in Detroit the importance of gardening. “With so many opportunities available to people with a little creativity, willpower, and funding to get started in this age of information, anyone can make a difference by making the world a little greener and more organic. I would definitely encourage others to do projects like this. The best advice I can give is to be nice and trust people. People want to help. Even people who have no interest in environmental issues and no idea what you’re trying to accomplish. For instance, the men who rented us the trailer were completely dumbfounded about why these two teenage girls wanted to buy their trailer and fill it with dirt. But they gave us a great deal, taught us how to drive a trailer, and helped us when we got a flat on the Lodge (Detroit freeway)," said Erwin.
