From the Ground Up: Engaging Students at All Levels through Garden Education

Friday, February 20, 2015

Dirt, vegetables, chickens, and a whole lot of elbow grease are seeding a new model for how school gardens can improve student learning and wellbeing.

Initiated in 2010, the UA’s Community and School Garden Program (CSGP), in partnership with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, places up to 60 UA interns each semester in gardens in 15 under-resourced schools in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) and four community gardens that serve low-income neighborhoods.
