The Best Summer Classroom

Leafy greens, succulent strawberries, juicy tomatoes. Nothing tastes better than fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Exercise, fresh air, and hands-on learning make gardens-and farms too-the best summer classroom. Gardening is a great way for children and youth to learn about nutrition, science, and the environment. Plus, if they grow the produce themselves, they are more apt to eat and enjoy it. What more could you ask for?
