Why A Garden?

When we asked volunteer scientists what inspired them to become scientists this is the gist of what Charles Yarish, marine biologist, and U Conn professor  said:

Working in my Brooklyn elementary school garden inspired me. There were gardens in schools left over from WWII victory gardens. I since went back and the school garden was cemented over.  

P.S. 219 gardeners in 1956  Charles Yarish is second from the left in back row.

So glad that so many cement schoolyards are being reclaimed as gardens.  We need more inspired scientific minds coming out of our public schools.
