Growing in the Garden: Local Foods and Healthy Living Curriculum
Growing in the Garden: Local Foods and Healthy Living is designed for youth gardening programs, community neighborhood gardens, farm to school programs, Ag in the Classroom and Master Gardening projects for grades 4-12. The curriculum is very adaptable to other ages as well.
The seven units address questions such as:
Why do people garden?
How do you plan, plant, maintain and harvest a garden?
How do you store and prepare garden produce?
Youth-serving organizations in Iowa are encouraged to contact their local
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county office
to explore partnership opportunities in administering this program. Additional information on this program is available on the
Connecting Learning and Living webpage
