Founder Claims No Green Thumb But Regency Grows Company Thrives

J.R. Pilyih claims he never started a garden before, but you would never know that when you step into the Regency Park Elementary School. In a classroom dedicated to a large scale aquaponics growing system, J.R. and his young entrepreneurs tend to the green plants and thriving fish. The harvests are so abundant in herbs and berries that a richer learning opportunity develops by selling what is grown. Through their EdCorp, Regency Grows Company, J.R. watches more than plants grow…his students are undergoing authentic entrepreneurial learning along the way.
