The Great Garden Detective Adventure at St. Frances

Official Project

The Problem

I would like to increase awareness about healthy food choices in schools. This project is designed to connect the garden to the classroom, the cafeteria, and the home. I hope to address a wide variety of topics such as healthy eating, lifestyle changes, and agriculture awareness through the farm to school project.

Plan of Action

I hope to apply the USDA program "The Great Garden Detective Adventure" to 3rd and 4th grade classrooms at a local school. Students will have the opportunity to grow their own fruits and vegetables and learn how these foods are used to fuel and heal the body. Students will not only be able to learn how their food is grown but have exposure to different fruits and vegetables they may not have consumed before.
