Louisiana School Garden InitativeGardening projects for children in a school setting provide an extraordinary learning opportunity, and their popularity is increasing. Through school gardening children can learn science, mathematics, English, environmental studies, health, family and consumer sciences and art. They learn first-hand about plants, nature and the outdoors, and they learn how fresh food is grown. Teachers in Louisiana have an excellent opportunity to enrich the educational experience and the lives of children through the use of school gardens.Benefits of school gardens
