Teaching Gardens

Teaching Gardens are real-life learning laboratories for students to learn what it means to be healthy – where their food comes from, how it's produced, and how eating fresh produce improves health. Children plant seeds, nurture growing plants, harvest produce and ultimately understand the value of good eating habits. Garden-themed lessons teach nutrition, math, science and other subjects all while having fun in the fresh air! Schools with gardens include

  • Bethel Grove Elementary
  • Charjean Elementary 
  • Cummings Elementary 
  • Double Tree Elementary
  • Douglass High School
  • Grahamwood Elementary (Demonstration Garden)
  • Keystone Elementary
  • Peabody Elementary School
