Schools across the country are establishing vegetable gardens and teaching children where food comes from and how to eat in a more healthful way..
The gardens have an educational and lifelong impact on the children as well as those who help, work, and support the gardens. From seed to table the process nurtures the earth, nurtures the soul of the gardener, and feeds the body. What could do more?

Hi Pheonix, I'd be happy to send you my initial notice and lots of other info if you'd like it. Actually, much is available on my blog. You may e-mail me at email@example.com I'm excited for you. Research. Find a teacher or 2 who will work with you. Get approval from the superintendent of schools. This a volunteer concept. No money, but lots of cooperation. Recycled tools. Get a bunch of kids. Choose a very sunny location. Get someone to donate lumber to build raised beds... Start composting. Start growing. I taught in middle schools for 30 years. Middle schoolers are the BEST!
