The goal of the Got Dirt? Gardening Initiative is to help teachers and childcare providers create gardens in their educational facilities. Involving children in the gardening process creates an active-learning environment. Moreover, by encouraging children to try the fruits of their labor, a garden can increase children's consumption and exposure to fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Got Dirt? Gardening Initiative features classes for educators to teach them about the process of starting a garden.

This blog will serve as a resource for Got Dirt? Gardeners and individuals interested in starting their own school garden. In particular, it will feature activities, tips, lesson ideas, and suggestions for ways to integrate a school garden into student's curriculum.

I hope that you enjoy this blog and find its contents valuable. If you would like to contribute to this blog or if you have suggestions, please let me know!
