Elementary School Garden & Nutrition Education, ages 5-11
Children in GrowingGreat-supported schools receive nutrition and garden education aligned with grade-level math, reading, science and social science standards. Our nutrition curriculum teaches children the basics of what’s in their food (e.g., proteins, fats, and carbohydrates) and how to know if food is healthy (e.g., reading nutrition labels). Our garden activities go further: where does food come from, how is it grown and what does it taste like straight from the source? GrowingGreat’s professional educators assist students in planting and tending their gardens until their creations are harvested. We bring nutrition education to life.
