The Louisiana School Garden electronic newsletter, Veggie Bytes, is designed to help educators and students use the school garden to learn more about the natural world around them.
There are several key components to this newsletter that will help you along with your gardening adventures. The What’s Growing section provides information on what and when to plant, as well as how to maintain particular plants.
The Activity Corner provides lessons that can easily be used to connect your classroom to the garden. The Seeding Service section will give you ideas on how to use your school garden to improve the local community. Plus, there is much more.
We hope you enjoy this newsletter and hope to hear from YOU, our readers. If you have a great lesson, garden tip or garden photo that you would like to share with other Louisiana school gardeners, please forward them to me. As future editions of the newsletter are produced, we will do our best to include your contributions.Kiki Fontenot, Ph.D.
