For a teacher, a garden is more than a beautiful place or a veggie patch. It is a powerful learning tool, as critical to a student's academic success as a computer or a microscope. To help students succeed, REAL School Gardens creates learning gardens in low-income schools and trains teachers how to use them to improve student engagement and academic achievement. While all children can benefit from hands-on outdoor instruction, we focus our efforts on children in low-income schools so that we address the greatest need.
