Teachers plant seeds that GROW FOREVER

School gardens are growing across Alberta. Over the past many years, the idea of school gardens has grown from a small seed into a full-grown concept that continues to gain traction in schools small and large, rural and urban across the province.

 

Integrating gardening into the classroom creates opportunities for students to learn and grow while engaging their natural curiosity and wonder. Gardening gives children of all ages a chance to learn important life skills, such as growing and harvesting their own food, bringing them closer to their agricultural roots. 

Research shows working in school gardens can:

  • Increase students’ science achievement scores

  • Improve social skills by cultivating empathy and teamwork

  • Increase students’ knowledge of nutrition and their willingness to consume fresh produce

  • Improve emotional literacy

  • Develop a sense of community and responsibility

  • Instill lifelong appreciation for the natural world
