Real Food Lab is a high school summer program which helps a select group of students develop real-world entrepreneurship skills through the growing, harvesting, and selling of Learning Garden produce. One Real Food Lab student said, “Being able to garden is therapeutic. Even if you don’t realize it, you’re helping something breathe life into itself. You’re seeing something grow from a seed into a flower or fruit or herbs. Being able to repeatedly see something grow, it felt like an accomplishment.” Follow the link in our bio to find out how you can sponsor a Real Food Lab Student today! 🌱 #learninggarden #realfood #entrepreneurship #studententrepreneur #studentbusiness #eatorganic #growyourown #realfoodlab

Meet Garden Club–they meet every Wednesday after school to garden, eat real food, and learn. The club includes over 30 kids from kindergarden to 5th grade. As students weighed the salad one student remarked, “Ms. Farnsworth, if the salad weighs 2 pounds without the bucket and 3 pounds with the bucket that means the bucket weighs one pound!” You got it, kid.🌱 #learninggarden #growyourown #coloradogarden #eatorganic #gardenclub #kidsgarden #kidsgardening

The green thumb superlative goes to our garden educators! “They're unbelievably helpful and well-organized. If I reach out with a, "My peas aren't growing," question, they're immediately responsive. They'll come if you want help with anything. If you need help with your planting days, they'll show up. They do a really good job walking that line between encouraging schools to take ownership and manage the garden independently, still providing needed support.”- Teacher 🌱 . . . . . #learninggarden #growyourown #eatorganic #urbangarden #kidsgardening #kidsgarden

biggreen

The superlative for MVP (Most Valuable Planter) goes to Learning Garden students! “In schools, the focus is on the students — creating an environment for which they can learn and grow. We mirror this in the Learning Garden, where we invite students to nurture and care for plants the way that the school community nurtures and cares for them — and show them that plants will return the favor by providing us with nutritious and delicious food to eat and air to breathe. Everything we do is for the students, but most importantly, the students we work with show up with enthusiasm, open minds, and a willingness to try things that they may have never tried before — whether it be eating a nasturtium flower or planting seeds carefully in the soil. Each and every child we interact with proves to us that they deserve to experience a garden on their school campus!" —Erika Hansen, Garden Educator 🌱 @eearthchild #learninggarden #kidsgarden #growyourown #realfood #kidsgardening #farmtoclassroom

“I feel like there was a life lesson because you can’t just stop and mope and be stuck in a dark place. Because, if you stay there, you will never grow.

Plant a seed to get back to your roots and harness the power of growing real food.

Big Green works every day to build a culture of health in our schools, so today, we’re planting for them. We teach kids to plant seeds, care for their garden, and most importantly, eat their delicious harvest. Schools with a Big Green Learning Garden have kids who LOVE veggies– and who eat them– both at school, and at home. We’re planting a seed for every student at every school we work with– and a few extra for our future gardeners! #PlantASeedDay🌱 . . . . . #realfood #realfoodgrowshere #farmtoclassroom #veggies4kids #healthedu #education #healthykids #growyourown #eatmoreveggies #kidsgarden
