"EWB partnered with The Dow Chemical Company and Career Academy to clean up the three greenhouses and clear out the storage building for use at Capitol High School. They also helped to plant Satsuma and orange trees and tomato plants. Not only will Capitol High students benefit from the cleaned greenhouses and storage building and the fresh vegetables, but also those at the Career Academy, which boasts a culinary arts program.

“This cleanup will make a huge difference to all of the students at the school,” [Courtney Rourke, President of the LSU Student Chapter of EWB-USA] said. “It was great to work with students and faculty from Career Academy and to hear first-hand how excited they were about the results.”"
