Browning has a greenhouse, an aquaponics system and raised garden beds that are used productively by students in its after-school program. Port Fish, Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful and SHARP Literacy work with the Silver Spring Neighborhood Center and Browning School, to teach youth about growing organic produce, eating healthy, and being more physically active. As part of the program, our scholars are being trained in building and maintaining Sustainable Urban Food Systems (i.e. Aquaponics System, Vermiculture, Sprouts System, etc.), collaborating with Browning Elementary School to install a native prairie and community garden, hosting cooking classes focusing on nutrition, and teaching youth about food sovereignty and the importance of eating fresh local food.
