School Gardens!

This year we had our first school garden at KHS! Great Job to Mrs. Jenny and her 4-H Gardening Club!

Transform a schoolyard space into a garden! A school garden is a wonderful way for students to physically connect with nutrition education, understand the process of growing healthy foods, and recognize environmental stewardship. A school garden can also be integrated into many subjects such as math, science, health, literacy and social studies.

Steps to Follow if you are planning to have a school garden!

Þ Form a Garden Committee, Determine Goals for Your Garden, Find Your Site, Plan and Design Your Site, Consider Materials And Funding and Information Sources
