Have you seen the academic research that shows how school gardens are positively impacting children’s lives? Do you need to convince the administration why your school should have a garden? Are you seeking out data-driven studies to earn the support of the school district? School gardens and cooking classes are positively impacting fruit and vegetable consumption, academic success, childhood obesity, emotional health/wellbeing, and food justice, and we have the studies and summaries (PowerPoint slides) to prove it! In this webinar, Slow Food USA National School Garden Program Director, Andrew Nowak, describes how academic research can make an impact on starting and maintaining your school garden. Slow Food USA encourages use of our PowerPoint presentations and research summaries (http://gardens.slowfoodusa.org/current-academic-research) in your own presentations to school boards, administrators, and districts to gain support for the start or maintenance of a school garden. *Any original data represented in either graphic or written form can be assumed to be statistically significant Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsSlow Food USA School GardensSlow Food Miami – School Gardens for Kids – “Teaching” GardensJanuary School Garden Webinar: Ark of Taste & Biodiversity in School GardensSchool Garden WebinarSchool Gardens 2.0-Slow Food Vertical GardenEasy Vertical Hydroponics Tower Garden – Even Beginners Can Grow Food
