A Crack in the Pavement is a two-part video set that shows children, teachers and parents how, working together to green their school grounds, they can make positive changes in their communities. Digging In follows students from Toronto's Jesse Ketchum School as they take steps towards the greening of their schoolyard. Along the way they get 'how-to' advice and inspiration from kids across the country; from Pauline Public School, where students raised $10,000; from Broadacres School, where a family of wild ducks found a home in their pond; and from Queen Mary School, where the students tip is to 'get help from your parents and teachers to make your garden happen!'
