Food for Thoughts Logo

The Food for Thoughts program is designed to help teachers to use the outdoor environment for their classroom.  Children and teachers can grow to love the outdoor classroom together with a school garden. When students grow something outside, they learn to care about their school, and to eat what they grow. Students get exercise, teachers get an alternative to the normal lesson plan and everyone benefits!  Taking education outside helps students gain new perspectives, better attitudes and builds a desire for learning. Science, math, journal writing, art and storytelling are just some of the lessons which can be incorporated into a school garden. The options for learning outdoors are limited only by your imagination. Visit the Food for Thoughts website for more information.
