how to show kids where their food comes from.
Low maintenance vegetable gardening is a course created

alos working it into their lesson plans.
Teachers hope to make gardening part of showing kids
a healthy lifestyle.
Teaching the teachers to garden is just to let the
kids have some experience hands on gardening and
to teach them where their food comes from, and we
also are connecting it to the science cirriculum
that their learning in school so it's a great hands
on way for them to learn about gardening and also
about science .
Nutrition is another important lesson that Visker
hopes the teachers will pass on to their students.
