Schoolyard Gardens

I teach my  own children to garden.  The thought that so many kids don’t know this joy makes me a little sad not just for them as individuals who are missing out on the the true joy and wonder of growing something, but for our whole society who doesn’t quite understand what they are eating and consuming.   I figure if you are interested in this site, you might share my sentiment.  So here are some great sites to inspire you to help a local school create a Schoolyard garden.   Take inspiration from Alice Waters and The Edible Schoolyard she helped create. It is awe inspiring.   Make sure you see the “values in place” slide show.   Kids Gardening is a terrific site full of information about making schoolyard gardens really work.  They have links to grant applications.  There is also a great movement to help local farmers feed our kids.  Farm to school helps match farmers with schools across the country.
