The summer of 2021 was spent preparing for new and exciting opportunities at both New Jersey Health Communities Network (NJHCN) schools, Alexander Batcho Intermediate School (ABIS) and Smalley School. They continue to work on their AeroGardens, and with the start of the school year in September, they now have the tools needed to expand upon their current projects.
