JVL Wildcat Part of U.S. State Department Foreign Journalist Reporting Tour on Urban Green Initiatives
On June 20, 20 foreign journalists from major news organizations in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will be visiting the JVL Wildcat school in Hunts Point where they will meet the students, tour the kitchen facilities and view the student-built hydroponic garden (funded by money from Fresh Direct, a local online grocer who created the Green Angel fund.) Wildcat was chosen for this honor because of our culinary students, who learn industry-related skills at the school, and because of the innovative hydroponic garden, which allows students to grow greens for the culinary program and will eventually provide produce that students will be able to sell to the community. After visiting other Bronx sites, the journalists will return to Wildcat for a student-catered dinner featuring locally grown vegetables and seasonal food. We feel certain the journalists will be impressed with the students, the garden, and Wildcat’s commitment to a better, healthier future for all.
$10,000 for the Hydroponics Team at JVL Wildcat. Great job team!!
