DENVER - "What'd you learn in school today, honey?" Oh, just how to grow a cucumber.

The students at Bruce Randolph School have been learning how to tend to many vegetables and spices, as part of their classes inside Denver's first school-run hydroponic farm.

"Having a space to do hands-on [learning] is like, very stress relieving for students," said one student, Giovanni.

This became possible through donations and guidance from the DPS Foundation and Teens for Food Justice, and now the students are able to grow food that gets donated to 'We Don't Waste' and the school's own cafeteria.
