MANHATTAN BEACH -

Brooklyn high school students are learning the importance of sustainable farming while sharing their own ideas about the subject. 

Thirty students participated in the program as part of AT&T and Kingsborough Community College's Brooklyn Science Innovation Initiative.

A program that teaches students about farming and allows them to present ideas about making agriculture more sustainable.

Students spent time farming in Manhattan Beach and sharing their ideas on everything from innovative composting bins to smartphone apps that help consumers purchase healthy food.

The program has helped provide real-world experience for students all over New York City since 2015, organizers say.
