Greco Middle School students had a chance to test their skills at designing a garden through a competition sponsored by the Temple Terrace Community Gardens.
In an announcement posted on Temple Terrace Patch, TTCG member Elizabeth Leib noted that the contest was hosted in partnership with Greco lead STEM teacher Elizabeth Heli.
In January, students in Greco Middle School’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) program submitted their designs for evaluation by a community panel of judges including Joe Parr, director of horticulture at Busch Gardens; Autumn Balthazor, master gardener and lead science teacher at Benito Middle School; and TTCG members Mike Pont and Steve McBride.
Winner are: first place, Paola Rioja; second place, Carley Gonzalez; and third place, Lillith Foster Von Oesen, Aya Bricha and Cameron Abernathy.
