Central Elementary - Nevada

Noah's Garden is a student-led service-learning garden in Kiwanis Park in Nevada. The Central Elementary students won one of KIB’s Yo-Ho Tools Grants last year.  

Fourteen classroom teachers use KIB’s Teachers-Growing-Green.com to involve 325 students, and their families in the project. During the spring and fall each classroom plans, plants, tends and harvests their designated garden bed, then uses and/or donates the produce raised in the garden. Kids learn math, language, science and other academics in the garden through Clean & Green

A Beautiful Iowa School award winner, Central Elementary created Noah's Garden to teach lessons about food, conservation and community. The garden produce benefits
Food at First, the food pantry in Nevada.
