School Garden Grows
- Teresa Kemink, Kootenai Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
We have a school garden that the 4th grade class is in charge of. They tie it into the curriculum that the 4th grade studies. They work on it during their lunch period outside. During class time they grow starts and plan what fruits and vegetables to put in it. Our lunch room staff serves the produce when it is ready to the student population. We received money from the Idaho Dairy Council to help with supplies. Our garden has been in existence since 2010. Part of our Play was to serve smoothies with local blueberries.
