Garden Project

In 2008, The Newland Center started a garden project to teach our students about business principles.  This project was based on Operation Upgrade, a literacy program developed by ProLiteracy for women in Durban, South Africa.  


Students learned about financing a business, marketing and gardening, while continuing their GED and literacy studies.  With funds from NY Newspapers, The Newland Center supported the South African program so that they could build a greenhouse.
