Teens Grow Greens uses gardening to empower students in Milwaukee


Deionna Matthews used to struggle to stay motivated through high school. Then she found Teens Grow Greens, an organization that prepares teenagers for adult life and employment through gardening, entrepreneurship and community building. Students at Wauwatosa West High School explored how one community of young gardeners in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is developing important life skills.
