TUCSON, Ariz. (Tucson News Now) - Tucson Unified School District is launching a "TUSD Garden Series" on its website in celebration Earth Day.

The series, beginning Tuesday, will profile the different gardens amongst the TUSD schools and highlight how the gardens are being used to teach children math, science, language and a variety of other subjects, according to a news release.

The first series will spotlight Manzo Elementary School, a flagship site that has a variety of eco-friendly components such as a vegetable garden and a hydroponics system with tilapia fish. The elementary school also has a small Landscape Ecology Observation project coordinated with the Biosphere 2, a chicken coop, along with composting stations.

"One of the most motivating and exciting contexts for hands-on/minds-on learning is gardening, where students and adults interact, communicate, problem solve, and critically think together about their experience," Joan Gilbert said, the program coordinator for math and science.

The Garden series will feature a school a month. The next schools to be featured are Hollinger Pre-K-8 School, Pueblo Magnet High School, Tully Elementary and Palo Verde High School.
