1st Graders Learning about our School Garden
Our first graders are learning about how to make healthy food choices with the help of a few teachers and SWAT team members at our school. On a weekly basis, they go to our school garden, pick fruits and vegetables, and make a recipe out of it. They have made beet juice, pesto, and many other yummy, healthy foods!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students worked with our Ecology teachers and SWAT team to make these recipes and explore the garden.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students were able to explore direct and relevant ways to make healthy food choices.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students know how to identify plants in our garden and how to make healthy, tasty recipes!
