BENEFITS OF A SCHOOL GARDEN
School gardens act as a living laboratory where students are active participants in their learning.

Research shows that school gardens lead to:

  • improved knowledge of nutrition
  • increased preference for fruits and vegetables
  • greater interpersonal and cooperative skills
  • better science testing scores
  • reduction in crimes and an increased feeling of safety
