The real world experience of preparing a garden, watching it grow, and then harvesting the crop is unique in today's busy world. Students understand the cycle of life, how plants grow and produce food and seeds, ecosystems that are necessary, and the importance of agriculture in our world. We make global connections by planning gardens that represent different countries and realize that food is grown all around the world with many of the same types of produce but used in a variety of ways. Action Project The produce grown on our farm is donated to the Dorca's Ministries Food Bank. This action provides the healthy, nutritious food for people in need in our community.
