2nd Grade Gardeners Tell Their Stories
Nobody illustrates (literally!) the benefits of a school garden better than the kids themselves. These drawings are from our 2nd grade gardeners at P.S. 29. If your school already has a garden, we'd love to hear what it means to students, teachers and parents. Please send any testimonials, drawings or garden stories and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might feature them on this site.
