I would like to design a school garden that will offer a place to enrich teaching efforts with powerful hands-on experiences, make learning come alive, and help children learn! We will build a raised bed garden, start plants from seedlings, harvest, and hopefully motivate kids to eat and love fruits and vegetables. Children who are familiar with growing their own food tend to eat more fruits and vegetables (Bell & Dyment, 2008), and are more inclined to continue healthy eating habits through adulthood (Morris & ZidenbergCherr, 2002). Our school garden will serve as a “safe place” for students. Studies show that large numbers of students report “that they feel ‘calm,’ ‘safe,’ ‘happy,’and ‘relaxed’ while gardening!
