Subject: multi-ethnic kids gardens

Can anyone think of a garden that matches these criteria?  A friend of mine
works for a film company and asks...

"Are there any particular gardens that deal with kids learning about
different ethnic groups through gardening. Specifically, kids growing
vegetables and flowers that are from their "native" lands and sharing the
garden with each other. For instance- kids from mexico growing plants that
are traditionally mexican in one row and kids from india growing "their"
particular veggies right next to them and therefore learning about each
other's cultures and ethnic backgrounds through gardening. sort  of
learning about each other's roots through "roots" you know?"

"the reason i'm asking is because we're looking for stories to do for
public service announcements and i think this idea is very cool. let me
know what you think and if you've ever heard of this kind of program
existing in new york city or new jersey or pennsylvania."
