Solemi says she plans to donate her vegetable to a local food bank. The celebration marked the opening of the first school-based community garden in Aurora Public Schools. The project, funded by The Piton Foundation, was made possible through a partnership of Aurora Public Schools, Denver Urban Gardens (DUG), and Anschutz Medical Campus Department of Family Medicine and BRANCH, a multi-disciplinary student organization from the medical campus. A second garden is scheduled to open later this year at Hinkley High School. (Photo By Craig F. Walker/The Denver Post via Getty Images)
