Bibb Schools Plant Gardens | Health
The District's School Nutrition Program helped several schools plant new gardens this fall. Gardens were planted at Alexander II Magnet School, Jones Elementary School, and Skyview Elementary School.
Through these school projects students are learning how to plant and how to take care of a garden. They are also learning healthy eating habits and using science and math as they work in their gardens.
The fall gardens currently contain lettuce, cabbage, turnips, a variety of herbs, and onions. Once their gardens are ready for harvest, students will use the lettuce they have grown to make salads to eat in the classroom.
Other items that have been grown in school gardens include strawberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, and a variety of fruit trees.
Other schools with gardens include Carter Elementary School, Central High School, Ingram-Pye Elementary School, and Elam Alexander Academy.
