Rule #224: School gardens

Sustainable living is so important these days. Considering all the issues with food production, processing and transportation the benefits of growing your own vegetable garden, free of pesticides and chemicals are immeasurable (or maybe measurable) there's a lot of benefits. It's beneficial to the environment, your health and finances. This should be taught in schools. Starting right from kindergarten straight through high school. By the time a child is in grade 7 they should know how to plant, care for and harvest their own garden. It's not like they don't have the room. Check out all the wasted grass next time you pass by a school. I'm betting the kids would actually enjoy it.
I understand that summer break will make this difficult, however, rule #241 (summer vacation) will take care of that. In the meantime, the gardens will have to rely on student, teacher and community volunteers to help out during the summer months.

In the new world, In the new world, all schools will have veggie gardens with planting, tending and harvesting being part of the curriculum and the food will be served in the school cafe and donated to people in need.

AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!

  3. That is a fantastic idea. Get them outside and off the couch. They will learn the value of a little hard work, get exercise, and eat a lot healthier.
