Young People Create an Urban Oasis

Ohio State University uses gardening to teach at-risk youth about teamwork, nutrition, community engagement, and entrepreneurship. The Urban GEMS (Gardening Entrepreneurs Motivating Sustainability) project teaches students in Franklin and Mahoning Counties how to grow leafy greens using vertical tower gardens, as well as how to prepare and cook their harvests, teach their peers and families about healthy eating, and donate produce to the homeless. So far, there are tower gardens in nine locations in the region. The research team has plans to create a sustainable business growing food in food deserts with as many as 90 gardens in the next five years. "A lot of students are still wrapping their minds around the fact that Ohio State University and people who have resources are willing to invest in them,” said Dr. Deanna Wilkinson, researcher at Ohio State University. “They are just not used to that. What I want them to know is that they deserve all of the same opportunities as kids who live in communities with more resources.”
