This is the Mission of Grow to Learn NYC, an initiative established by the Mayor's Fund and Grow NYC. The program helps establish and promote sustainable gardens in each and every public school in New York City.
While planting seeds in the soil, the children will be planting seeds for a healthier future! Children are much more likely to eat healthy fruits and vegetables if they were involved in the growing process.
I hope this program inspires more cities and communities to implement school garden programs!
