"Digging in the Dirt" is a teacher created landscape plan to utilize our schoolyard as part of the classroom experience.
Interest in promoting gardening & health:
Our "Digging In The Dirt" project and had been created from the "Healthy Community Development" Mini-Grant award in 2009. This grant has initiated the beginning of a sustainable, edible garden as a nutritional intervention to provide an awareness of increased fruit and vegetable consumption.
Plant-based education is cross-curricular and can easily be utilized in nutrition, science, mathematics, language arts, social studies, instructional technology, physical education, art and music.
