I've been drafted to start a garden at our local elementary school, and I'm a bit intimidated. It will have to be an after-school project. I would like to supplement the lunch and afternoon snacks, donate to the school's food pantry and send some home with the kids. I would also like to incorporate crafting into the curriculum (pressed flower cards, spinning some fibers with a drop spindle, etc.). Is this too ambitious?

We've been working to try to have our schools implement these kinds of programs for years now. Unfortunately, it seems that urban schools are more reluctant to sponsor them than more rural schools. How sad.

We've had some success in working with the elementary schools in the area and helping them to establish school gardens. The cost of doing these things is relatively minor, but the payback is significant.

We need these types of programs; there are plenty of students who are interested in the agriculture industry.
