Not only do you change a students perception of where there food comes from but you can relax your students as well. Teach them to stop and smell the flowers. As cliche as this saying is, a garden is very theraputic and helps us reconnect to nature.

Brittany Anne Garcia's comment, May 7, 2013 1:01 AM
