Growing Our Impact with a School Garden: How We Became One of America’s Healthiest Schools

Every March, thousands of people join in celebrating National Nutrition Month, a time to recognize the important role healthy eating plays in our lives. As an educator, being able to impart lifelong, healthy eating habits in my students is one of the highlights of teaching. At Buck Lodge Middle School in Adelphi, Maryland, we instill these habits in a hands-on way, through our school garden. From bright tomatoes to juicy strawberries, my students take pride in growing crops and getting to taste new, healthy foods!
