Planting Food You Can Eat
From the Garden to the Classroom
Eating what you grow is an educational learning experience valuable to all young children. It helps connect the garden to the food they eat and enhances their sense of awareness of edible gardens. This participatory learning workshop opens up new opportunities for teachers to use the garden to reinforce classroom lessons.
