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.

Running an EdCorp “forces students to use their "textbook" knowledge and apply it in a real-world setting. They find meaning in the information they've learned previously.” Welcome back to one of our veteran founders, Jesse Klass of @PGEDesign! #EdCorps
