Gardening & Composting Activities
Gardens offer creative learning environments for hands-on study of plants and animals. All schools can create a garden, even those whose grounds are paved can easily construct a raised bed garden. Research has shown that gardens enhance learning, social interactions, and provide outdoor exercise. Gardens also give children an appreciation for and enjoyment of healthy, locally produced food. Acorn Naturalists offers a wide array of resources that enhance learning about gardening and composting.
