About the Program: 

The Rothenberg Rooftop School Garden seeks to provide and sustain unique learning opportunities for the students of Rothenberg Preparatory Academy through hands-on garden-based lessons; and to engage community members in rooftop activities through the school's function as a Community Learning Center.

Integrated with math, science, and language arts, the rooftop garden program creates opportunities to enrich student's learning, develop critical thinking skills and foster stewardship of their surroundings and community. More than growing things, the rooftop garden is an innovative model for learning and a point of pride in the historic inner city neighborhood of Over-The-Rhine, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
