Made In Manzo was an event developed to celebrate the opening of a greenhouse at Manzo Elementary School in Tucson, Az. Manzo was at the risk of being closed due to being in a poor neighborhood and low math test scores. The school is unique in that it has a large reconciliation ecology program including an endangered tortoise habitat, aquaponic fish farm, and fruitful garden. We planned an event that brought the neighborhood and local ecology programs together to see the amazing work being done and petition for the school to remain open. As of date, Manzo School was voted to remain open and is fully funded. It has also received numerous awards for it's eco-friendliness.
