“As a former teacher and scientist, I can hardly express my excitement and gratitude that the garlic project has been integrated into Ms. Krug's lesson plans! Let's hear it for holistic learning!”

~Lake View Elementary Parent

“Gardens can serve as living laboratories in which students can see what they are learning and in turn, apply that knowledge to real world situations.” (Klemmer et al., 2005)

Students who had the opportunity to learn outdoors “developed observation skills and applied them in other classroom activities; improved descriptive and scientific vocabulary; demonstrated understanding of the scientific method;…and explored connections between science and writing.” (Castagnino, 2005)
