In 2012, Project CHANGE partnered with Davis Magnet Elementary School in Jackson, MS, to develop a comprehensive farm-to-school program through the use of the Teaching Garden as well as the reading orchard and other edible landscape. As a new approach in the fight against childhood obesity, a Teaching Garden links kids to improved academic performance because increased fruit and vegetable intake changes how students think about and consume food.
