Science in the Learning Gardens

By Dilafruz Williams

A brief overview of a three-year project funded by the National Science Foundation can be seen in the video: http://stemforall2017.videohall.com/presentations/914. This project supports racial and ethnic minority students to succeed in science by engaging in real-life, active, culturally relevant education in the Learning Gardens. To capitalize on school gardens that are sprouting nationally, a 3-year partnership project called Science in the Learning Gardens or SciLG began in 2014. The enclosed flyer provides a description of the project which shows promise as middle school students are motivated to learn and engaged in the gardens as they grow food and connect with soil.
