Studies show that kids who are actively involved in growing fruit and vegetables are more likely to eat them. Increasingly, schools nationwide are taking this message to heart with green plots, gardening clubs and harvest sampling days. But in our region, some schools are taking their gardens to the next level with aquaculture operations, retail and farm market sales and even beekeeping. For students, these operations can mean hands-on fun while they learn how fresh, healthy food arrives on their plates.
