After Isaac is caught vandalizing a sign at his local community garden, he’s put to work under the wing of one of the gardeners, Aurora. But Isaac’s time with Aurora isn’t just about growing vegetables! As they make useful projects together for the garden and for Isaac’s home, Aurora teaches Isaac about the natural and human-built systems we’re all a part of, how our decisions and lifestyles impact the planet, and how even a kid can make better choices to live more sustainably!
