Created by teachers, this multifaceted garden, nutrition, and physical activities curriculum is evidence-based and academically rich. Through a linear set of hands-on, proven lessons, youth will better understand plants and how plants provide for people’s needs. The 10-week (2 lessons/week) unit of study will step a class or youth group through process of establishing a thriving garden that is easy to create and maintain. The curriculum features opportunities for fresh vegetable tasting/evaluation, simple recipe demos, and physical activities that research shows can improve on-task behavior and academic performance.
