Students at one Brooklyn high shcool can now put their green thumbs to good use.
Edward R. Murrow High School in Midwood officially open its new green rooftop classroom and urban farm laboratory Friday.
Thanks to funding from the New York Power Authority and the Borough President's office students will learn about sustainable development, environmental sciences and food production.
This is all part of NYPA's Green Classrooms initiative that provides STEM enhancement programs to students in underrepresented communities.
"Finding a place where they can discover those passions and those interests; and I thik this is just another way that we can do that here in this school," said Edward R. Murray High School Principal Allen Barge.
Six more schools in the borough will receive funding to support educational curriculums, and teacher trainings.
