Dianne Desbiaux, the Boys and Girls Club’s French early childhood educator, took on the Tower Garden project to teach her French pre-school club kids the importance of nutrition and how to grow their own healthy food.

"It is a powerful tool for teaching real life skills." said Dianne. "It is full of opportunities to bring French language , concrete experience with science, math and other life skills. It can be all year around and the children can see the progress of each plant and harvest it in a shorter time. It gives children self esteem that they can make this happen, and they learn in a positive environment."
