Greco Gardens at Greco Middle School is a unique project created by two organizations, the Temple Terace Community Gardens and Temple Terrace Farm2School. Since its opening in 2013, TTF2S has organized volunteer groups to build the student gardens, helped Greco students plant and harvest, built an outdoor classroom in partnership with the USF School of Architecture and Community Design, organized regular grounds and garden maintenance workdays, organized a volunteer team to feed the animals on the weekends and helped with general facility maintenance.
During the 2016/17, 2017/18 and the current school year, Farm2School community and USF Patel College volunteer teams led by Beth Bosserman-Curts and the Gessman family, have helped with maintenance of the Greco Pollinator Garden, the Temple Orange tree grove, and feeding the farm animals on weekends and during school breaks.
