In my school we have massive vegetable beds - we grow anything imaginable. Each grade level is responsible for a bed (Grades k-2). They do the planting, weeding, and staking. When the vegetables are grown, we donate them to the local food bank.

Where we live, luckily, the school kids live and farm in nature everyday.

Read and noted with thanks Cher. There are so many outdoor activities and so many children are spending too many hours on electronic devices. I like an idea I read of a grade school in the Okanogan, B.C. where the school has introduced a outdoor class of planting a garden from seeds and the children have to do the watering and weeding and watch them grow! The produce is given to the food bank I believe, some they keep for a sale.
