Students at Horton Elementary School show off the fruits of their labor at The Learning Grove, the first school garden in San Diego.

Created from scratch by advertising agency NYCA -- who brought their "grow!" philosophy to life by reaching out to the local corporate community to literally help seed the effort -- the garden was officially dedicated yesterday by San Diego Councilman representative Roosevelt Williams III, NYCA CEO Michael Mark and Horton Elementary School Principal Robin McCulloch. Students proudly gave tours of the garden, sharing what they've learned about Plants, Nutrition, Sustainability and Responsibility.

NYCA, a full-service advertising agency, opened its doors and arms to the world in March 2002. Clients include TaylorMade Adidas Golf Worldwide, Rossa Putters, Noodle Golf, ViewSonic Corp., The San Diego Union-Tribune, SignOnSanDiego, The EastLake Company, Kyocera Wireless, EnDev (Stingaree, Side Bar, The Witherby, Ciro's, Bar West), Duramed FUTURES Tour and others. The 38 remarkable NYCAers work on the beaches of Encinitas, California. Lucky, huh? Log on to nyca.com to learn more.
