MELROSE - News 12 The Bronx got a special look at unique gardens throughout the Melrose community.

At the Garden of Life, students from P.S./M.S. 29 planted flowers and trees in the green space last year. Teacher Scott Wade says he wanted a space for his students to learn about gardening. Wade now uses the garden as a classroom for his students.

Fifteen other gardens in the neighborhood have been started by the Nos Quedamos gardening group. Among the gardens they've created in Melrose are the Ricon Criollo garden at Brook Avenue and 157th Street.

Program Director Ana Melendez says they're dedicated to creating something beautiful out of something without any potential.
