School gardens make a huge difference everywhere, but especially in urban, low income schools where students learn not only about gardening, but also about nutrition, health and environmental justice. Here is a quote from an interview I did with Abby Rosenheck, the founder and Executive Director of Urban Sprouts, an school garden program in San Francisco, "They're learning about health and nutrition. It's actually helping them to develop better eating habits and nutritional choices, and then, it's helping them to use their new knowledge to change their behaviors so that they are actually becoming more environmentally responsible in their daily lives, taking it home--choosing to eat more vegetables more often. And then it also helps them succeed in school in other ways. It helps them engage more in learning, and in science and health classes and it also has a lot of other outcomes which we see: youth cooperating, learning, feeling more confident and strong, and able to make decisions and to kind of run the garden themselves." hide
