Collaboration

IN 2015, ABRAXAS HIGH SCHOOL BEGAN A school GARDEN.  THE GARDEN BEGAN BY TRANSFORMING A LITTLE USED TENNIS COURT INTO A thriving outdoor lab to teach students about growing healthy food, and giving back to the community by donating the produce to the people in our community that need it the most. half of the tennis court grows produce in soil supplied through our compost program. The other half of the garden is powered by an 8000 gallon aquaponic pond filled with over 300 tilapia fish. the garden was built entirely by students in the ABraxas construction class, as well as students in the aquaponic and agriculture classes. We have grown tremendously since our BEGINNING. we have donated over 6000 pounds of fresh produce to needy families in our community, and we have over 150 diploma bound students working/learning in the garden yearly, we also work in tandom with our special needs students in our transition progam that serves students from the ages of 18 to 22.
