Five Reasons to Grow a Garden in Every School

School gardens grow more than plants. Youth gardening grows healthy, engaged learners who benefit from improved nutrition, enhanced academic achievement and a better awareness of the natural world around them. And not only does gardening provide the tangible benefits of exercise and fresh food, it also fosters communication, builds strong relationships and offers an opportunity to work towards a common goal.

While the benefits are many, here are our top five reasons to support school garden programs:

1. School Gardens Grow Healthy Kids
2. An Outdoor Classroom is a Living Laboratory
3. Students Grow Into Citizen Scientists
4. Gardening Builds Community Bonds
5. School Gardens are a Team Effort
