In the fall, students will be introduced to basic nutrition and gardening concepts. Students will make the connection between gardening and health through seasonal gardening activities, basic nutrition guidelines, and lessons on life cycles and composting. Each lesson plan is densely packed to fill a one-hour class session with discussion, hands-on experiential learning and journaling. The lessons have been organized to follow the seasons but many can be adapted to fit other times of the year.
