Kyle is a teacher at High Tech High in Chula Vista, CA. He tells us, "We hope to expand upon our preexisting orchard/garden in hopes of being able to provide our school lunches with fruit and other vegetables that we cultivate on site allowing our sustainable and strong environmental science focus to strengthen.
