Garden Harvest at Ford Elementary

Grantee: Ford Elementary / Acworth, Georgia

Grant Type: Project Learning Garden

Description: Ford was one of our pilot PLG schools, initiated in 2011. A couple years ago,

Captain Planet Foundation returned to join Ford Elementary for a garden work day in their Victory gardens; tying garden learning to a history lesson.

With several work stations that included “make your own salad dressing” and “mix your own rainbow-colored salad,” the students were able to enjoy the literal fruits of their labors while learning about historical gardening, seasonality, and practicing healthy eating and cooking skills!
