This year, I am working closer with the teachers to integrate this amazing experience into the curriculums. From starting the seeds, caring for the gardens themselves, to drawing photos and noticing the daily changes. Everything from calculating the nutrients to learning about your 5 senses are lessons to learn with growing your own food. The best part, the kids start eating healthy greens!
So as everyone else is harvesting their outdoor gardens, the kids in the elementary schools will be starting their seedlings and watching them grow. The excitement and passion I see in the kids as they learn to grow their own food is overwhelming. Check out my "Garden's in Schools" page for updates throughout the school year. And contact me if you would like to help your local schools grow gardens too! Let’s plant some seeds, and watch them grow!
