Gardening Makes Student Engagement Bloom

Can a school based mentorship, centered around our current Garden Program activities, positively affect student outcomes in social and emotional learning?

“I think the biggest impact has been greater student engagement in the school. The kids that are needing that extra boost have had a great program and mentor to make them feel special and involved. They seem more positive toward their school and have more confidence in general.”
