Ethan Elsbury

Greenfield, Indiana

Ethan Elsbury, 17, of Greenfield, Ind., a junior at Greenfield-Central High School, has invested more than 400 hours in creating and maintaining a community garden, growing enough fresh produce to feed 2,800 students at three local schools. Ethan initially started the garden to provide locally-grown fruits and vegetables for the cafeteria at his high school, where about 40 percent of students are on free or reduced lunch.
