Gardening our way to good health
- Javier Martinez, Barnes Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
We have grown our own vegetables at Barnes Elementary. We have taught our students about vegetables and the way they help our body stay healthy. We also grew our own school garden with squash, green beans and many other types of vegetables. Our kids actively participated, from pulling weeds to tasting the delicious vegetables we picked from our garden. We will challenge our students to grow their own gardens at home to practice what they have learned.
