Mission Hill School is located in Roxbury and joined SLUG in the fall of 2008. Since then the gardening efforts have taken off, and now have a host of plants both indoor and out. Mission Hill has had a number of Site Coordinators in the past, the most recent of which is Andrew Breck, a teacher naturalist placed at Mission Hill through Mass Audubon.

Mission Hill's indoor garden flourishes year round. These pictures are from the Spring 2010 growing season.

Mission Hill makes use of some season extension materials supplied by SLUG. These students are able to grow in to the colder months through the help of the pop-up greenhouse.

Students help to set up pop-up greenhouses to help plants keep warm during early spring.
