#15: Manuela Zamora: NY Sun Works. Science education and curriculum through hydroponic farming labs and greenhouses in urban classrooms throughout NYC.

NY Sun Works is a nonprofit that transforms classroom science labs into fully functioning hydroponic farms that educate students and teachers about local food. Executive Director, Manuela Zamora, and her team have revamped science class for grades K-12 to cover everything from photosynthesis and pollination, to community impact and global sustainability. Regardless of zip code, every single student gets a chance to bring home delicious, local produce they’ve grown and harvested, to share with friends and family.
