WDMESC: Digging Deeper - Starting a School Garden Program - Virtual Workshop



  School gardens are fantastic educational tools and provide students with opportunities to eat healthy foods, connect to nature, and learn about nutrition. School gardens also provide an avenue for students to engage in hands-on learning through gardening and farming. Studies show that when kids are involved in growing food, they are more likely to eat more fruits and vegetables and more willing to try different kinds. This course is recommended to those who have base level understanding of farm to school and who are interested in developing a school garden in the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
Learning Objectives:
Learners will create, design, and plan out the layout of a school garden.
Learners will select the fruits and vegetables they intend to grow in their school environment.
Learners will hear examples and practice ways to engage students in the tending and harvesting of school garden produce.
Learners will brainstorm how to extend the school garden to the classroom, cafeteria, and community.
