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.

Educators should be encouraged to experiment. Not only does it allow us to discover new things but it shows students that we don't have all the answers. @spencerideas #WednesdayWisdom
