Joining forces with Whole Foods, D.S. Venetta wants to connect kids with nature and the food they eat by inviting them to share and prepare their school garden harvest with area students and families.
No school garden? No problem. This will be the perfect opportunity to learn just how easy and rewarding it can be! For those teachers in need of help establishing a gardening curriculum, your local IFAS Extension office can provide all the guidance and resources you need, plus enough inspiration and enthusiasm to sustain you for the entire year!
