  • This curriculum works best in a school or community garden to make it more relevant to students. The lessons can be implemented without a garden, but having the garden for students helps them make connections and makes this curriculum easier to implement. Teachers should try a few of the activities to see which will be most relevant for their students and which they are able to implement. Teachers should be aware they may need to do some research and aid students in the final sustainability project, as this is more involved than the other activities.
