The goal of a school garden is to produce something that grows before the student’s eyes and teaches them more than any textbook ever could. I wanted this site to be a resource for educators, so I kept the students in mind when researching the plants for this page. Many of the plants that I recommend have large seeds, so that the students can handle them, and grow quickly, so that the students do not lose interest. On this page you can find recommendations for planning your garden and ideas for growing during the winter months.
