This is a great journal article explaining how a low income school grew a garden with the students. This project not only taught the students about plants, but also about healthy eating. I love the idea of using a garden in a school and I hope to have this sort of opportunity in my future classroom!

This very interesting article gives detailed steps how a school helped students and families become aware of healthy foods and how to grow them. It describes a year long project of an entire school being involved in creating a community garden and winning a national award in the process!!

I thought this article was great at outlining just what was attempted and accomplished at the various grade ranges in elementary school. It's very helpful due to its explanations of the Next Generation Science Standards utilised at each level. The article also had some great ideas about using gardens in low income schools.
