sustainability - in school garden program, whole school involvement

The Australian Organic Schools program promotes the benefits of growing and eating organic produce through the creation of a school garden.

Geri is a parent at Berkshire Trail Elementary School in Cummington, MA. "Building the garden into the school curriculum, teaching organic gardening practices, composting and recycling systems, soil health and composition, a whole foods diet, and environmental stewardship are our goals for our garden's sustainability program." #diggingdeeper

Kyle is a teacher at High Tech High in Chula Vista, CA. He tells us, "We hope to expand upon our preexisting orchard/garden in hopes of being able to provide our school lunches with fruit and other vegetables that we cultivate on site allowing our sustainable and strong environmental science focus to strengthen. Our hope is to eventually get rid of our current school lunch program  and move towards and organic program, with food grown on site." #diggingdeeper

A program aimed at teaching students the value of organic farming and sustainable living showed off their work at Lighthouse School in Madisonville on Tuesday.

When teaching about plants, students can grow their own vegetables. We could have a mini class farm.

Our flagship education program, Green Lane Diary, started in 2010 and since then 78,433 diaries have been circulated to 624 schools (current to 2012), zoos and environmental centres. The program runs annually during Term 3. The Green Lane Diary is designed by environmental educators to help 8-13 year old children become aware of the stresses our planet confronts and how sustainable living can make a difference.
