In fact, a number of schools across the nation have started offering gardening initiatives at their campus in order to provide a learning opportunity to their students. Furthermore, these programs produce healthy food for their lunch programs.
For example, a story in the Catonsville Times featured an initiative that is run by the Baltimore City Public School District. The Great Kids Farm gives students a chance to grow food and experience an atmosphere that may not be provided by their typically urban setting.
"Before I came on the farm, I used to waste food. Now I know what effort it takes to make it," Trey Randall, an 18-year-old who helps at the facility, told the newspaper.
Some companies, such as John Deere, also offer their own agriculturally related educational programs. The farm equipment manufacturer features monthly craft sessions at its pavilion in Moline, Illinois.
The John Deere Pavilion also acts as a historical site for the company.
