Our school motto has become “Life’s a Garden… Dig IT!” The students are learning how to manage their resources while growing high quality food and seed saving for the following year. We also learn to preserve our fruits, vegetables and herbs by canning, pickling and dehydrating. With the addition of these supplies, our students will expand their knowledge of self sustainability by learning to raise animals for food products while growing the food that feeds the animals. Agriculture in the classroom is providing a much needed educational opportunity for our students that they can take back to their homes and communities. While in the gardens, the students are learning life skills such as patience and determination. We discuss the economy and how locally grown food can change the way we eat and reduce the obesity epidemic. They are also putting basic math skills to work by measuring gardening areas and determining the amount of soil needed. They enjoy the physical activity while not only learning about agriculture, but also science, math, and economics.
