FORT MYERS, Fla. — South Fort Myers High School received a special tool to help students learn about sustainability, a custom garden.

It's a 400-plant Hydroponic system designed by the Island Coast High School Academy of Natural Resources.

That's a method of gardening does not use soil.

The academy's students will teach South Fort Myers High students how to design, layout, build and operate a Vertical Hydroponics system.

The goal of the program is to educate others about food security, water conservation, and water quality issues.
