School gardens are a vital educational tool. Learning about the process of growing food helps children develop a deep understanding of the connection between healthy eating and a healthy body. School gardens offer an opportunity to integrate math, science and health curriculum into a dynamic, interactive setting and provide a base of knowledge that allows children to take an active role in healthy food choices.
