School Gardens

Gardens connect students to the food they eat and the environment they live in, encouraging them to make healthy choices for their bodies and their world.

  • Gardens foster community by connecting students, teachers, school staff, parents, and volunteers.
  • Gardens bring education to life by providing a rich environment that inspires students and allows for the integration of multiple curriculum subjects.
  • Gardens provide an opportunity to teach responsibility, respect, and cooperation.
