Miss Winn encourages her wards to have faith in humanity despite the cards they've been dealt in life. One of her most useful tools is to have each youngster care for a plant whose state mirrors the state of their own lives. As the boys tend their plants, they learn to accept that all living things (including themselves) need love and nurturing to grow and thrive.
Children become wards of the state through no fault of their own, but many believe that somehow they are to blame. Miss Winn's Garden tells a slightly different story.
