Our students in Mobile are learners, thinkers, and scholars. They come from many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. These children enter the classroom every day ready to interact, explore, and relate their learning to the real world.
Last year, the students have worked tirelessly to create a garden where they grow and harvest vegetables.
While spending time in the garden, they have measured, worked out addition and subtraction problems, researched different vegetables, observed plants, harvested vegetables, and counted money through selling their items from the vegetable cart.
Through the use of greenhouses, our students will be able to plant vegetable seeds and observe the entire germination process. Once the seeds have germinated, the students will transplant them into our raised beds where they will tend to the vegetables daily. Students will not only learn the value of responsibility, dedication, and hard work through these activities - they will also see the farm-to-table process firsthand. Our hope is for the students to take this knowledge home to their families and plant gardens at their homes. This project will also provide many opportunities to integrate all subject areas into the garden.
