Gardens come in all shapes and sizes, and school districts, along with other community institutions with varying levels of land are finding ways to establish gardens both within and outside school grounds. Gardens can be as simple as a few containers on a windowsill or cover acres, and gardens can thrive in all climates. Program operators find that even small gardens help children gain familiarity and comfort with the fruits and vegetables they are seeing more of at mealtimes. Gardens also provide a great opportunity to volunteer and engage with your local schools or community.
