Gardening is one of the best methods to implement project-based learning. Almost any subject can be taught in the garden, especially science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Lessons that focus on ecosystems, soil science, algebra, geometry, reading, history, and so much more can be taught focusing on horticulture. The best part about teaching in the garden is getting the students outside of the classroom, while still engaged in a core subject!
Gardens can be used to implement hands on nutrition and physical activity programs. What better way to do a cooking demo than harvesting a fresh salad from the garden. Gardening also is directly related to physical education as students are active and moving while planting, moving soil, pulling weeds, and more!
Teaching people how to be proper stewards of the environment is a top priority for us. Our climate is changing, and we are at a tipping point. Species are becoming extinct, water is scarce / polluted, and urban sprawl is threatening the fertility of our land. We promote environmental sustainability through organic gardening methods.
