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. Growing Dreams gives an inspirational overview of school ground greening. It shows what kids have done to transform bare pavement into dream schoolyards: growing trees for shade, flowers for butterflies, vegetables for a food bank; building a greenhouse, a rooftop garden and constructing a courtyard pond as an outdoor classroom and refuge for wildlife.
