Go Green Garden

 

A campus garden is a great way to teach students responsibility and resourcefulness as well as a good way to teach about clean eating. Gardening for students offers educational benefits giving a hands-on learning opportunity in a wide range of areas including nutrition and multiple sciences. A garden can also offer environmental connection. With the growing use of technology, a garden can deepen a studentís sense of connection with nature. Gardening teaches people about nutrition and the benefits of having fresh, unprocessed foods. Going green with a campus garden can build a stronger campus community.
