Melanie Shimano, Director and Founder of the Food Computer Program in Baltimore City Public Schools, and her west Baltimore high school students are showing their community a healthier way to eat by sharing what they grow―and what they learn.
A food computer is essentially a tabletop garden.

Students at Green Street Academy have built a hydroponic system using plans for an affordable food computer.
