Farm To School Garden Lessons

The Next Step Adventure team (yes, we're the ones behind these amazing TGG resources) developed lessons for the Des Moines Public Schools Farm to School program. We're happy to share them here as part of our efforts to connect children with nature through school gardens.

We hope these lessons inspire you to start a school garden. If you already have a garden, we think they will help you connect the lessons learned there more closely to your classroom curriculum. A big thank you to Des Moines Schools for being great partners, and for bringing innovative education to Iowa's most diverse population.
