Ask every gardener, and they’ll tell you that spending time with the soil is all about learning—learning what the earth can take, what plants work well (and what ones don’t work at all), what effect the changing weather and seasons have on a garden. And there’s also time to learn how to think about plants working together, about working to upkeep a garden, about designing space to make the most of every corner.

Those are all lessons that benefit not just gardeners, but every learner—including students. That’s probably part of the reason why school gardens have grown in popularity. Educators realize their potential—not just to help students learn about where food comes from and what good nutrition looks like—but for all those other reasons, too. A school garden is a classroom laboratory of the most practical kind.
