LET'S GET

GROWING

Whether growing vegetables, fruits, or a variety of herbs, edible gardens are a valuable tool that can be used to promote healthier eating habits, showcase food production and farming practices, teach environmental stewardship, encourage community and social development, and even instill a sense of place. Plus, it's a lot of fun.

Ag for Life offer's a variety of edible gardening workshops, classes, resources and special events all designed to bring out your inner farmer!​

How-To Guides

Garden-based agriculture and nutrition education can motivate school children to eat healthier and garner a greater understanding of food production. The process of planting their own seeds, watching them grow into plants, preparing the grown food, and eventually eating it can give students a new and sustainable perspective on healthy eating habits.
