"School gardens can be a vehicle for teaching standards-based science, mathematics, social science, and English-language arts courses, as well as garden-enhanced nutrition, health, agricultural, and visual art education. School gardens reinforce healthy food choices and lifestyles in an experiential learning environment. Instructional school gardens can nourish students' bodies and minds and also help students develop a better appreciation for sustaining the environment, maintaining our food supply, and prompting stewardship of our earth.”
-California Superintendent of Schools, Jack O’Connell
