School Year Gardens - A Toolkit for High Schools to Grow Food from September to June

School gardens are enjoying a surge in popularity. Children all over the country are engaged in both growing and cooking vegetables grown on their school grounds. While gardening on school property is often no different than growing at home, the school calendar can pose some challenges. The veggies most children are familiar with are summer crops – tomatoes, corn, zucchini, or beans.

Growing for the school year, however, can indeed be successful. The School Year Garden Toolkit, written by Paris Marshall Smith and Arzeena Hamir helps garden coordinators to select, plant and harvest vegetables during the school year. Tips on where to source materials, how to plan for summer care, and lesson plans are also included.
