School Garden-Based Nutrition Education The Riddle Elementary School Garden, Cavanaugh Elementary School Garden, Mid-Michigan Leadership Academy Garden and Willow Elementary School Gardens teach students about healthy eating and how to grow food for themselves. Students run the gardens, participating in every step from choosing what to grow and preparing the soil, to harvesting, cooking, and eating the food. We currently have 46 classes (1,062 students), grades K-8 enrolled for 1 hour visits each month. These Colorado girls are making a huge difference at their school. Check out a project they created and implemented through Caring for our Watersheds Ripple Effect Challenge.
