How can your school be a part of Growing Great Schools?

If you are not quite sure where to start, and a school garden sounds daunting…

Here are 5 simple things you can do.

  1. Set up a taste test of a new menu item in your cafeteria.
  2. Start a Green Team. Set goals – reduce trash at lunch, reduce energy consumption, increase recycling…
  3. Run a “Green Assembly” for the school population to launch your Green Team.
  4. Host a kid-run Farmer’s Market.
  5. Hold a cooking class for kids and parents.

Think big, start small!
