A GARDEN PROJECT AT SCHOOL

vegetable garden

School vegetable gardens are a great way for children to learn about where their food comes from and to get them excited about eating fresh vegetables. 

It is also a chance to learn outdoors!

 

Urban Seedling  help our school plan, build, plant, and maintain a school vegetable garden. 

We involve students  in our planting workshops. 

 A vegetable garden is a great way to build ties between children, 

parents and teachers, and within the community.
