Winter Lessons

Now that the students have a better understanding of how the garden can aid in good nutrition, they will expand their understanding of nutrition. They will learn more about vitamins, nutrients, where food comes from, reading nutrition labels and healthy food preparation so they can make small personal changes toward healthy living.

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.
