This gardenwill not only provide us with tasty treats,but also a great learning experience.We plan to use the garden at allgrade levels. The earlier grades will beable to use the storybook portion of ourgarden, while the older students will beable to use the garden for science andmath. This is a great experience for thechildren to learn about nutrition andhealth. The Butterfly garden bed willgive the students a great opportunity tolearn about the different stages in the lifeof a monarch butterfly and its historicjourney to Mexico.The learning opportunities areendless, but the best garden can be onethat you start at home. It can be a greatway to grow your own fruits andvegetables. It is also a great way to getthe kids to try new flavors. Eatinglocally grown food helps your foodbudget and theenvironment.
