    This is fantastic! Wish my school had had this. Great to see these skills and this type of learning happening early on. Hopefully these students are more likely to keep these habits and this knowledge and act on it later in life.

    What an awesome idea. It incorporates so many disciplines and builds students' skills in many areas. This is an excellent example of a hands-on, practical application learning experience. Highly endorse!

    Cool idea. Are the farmers markets run in the schools or are they just part of the community? It would be great to see students growing their own food- and having a weekend market open to the public once a month.

      There are AmeriCorps VISTAs who coordinate school gardens and they organize the event. The kids do a lot of work in the gardens. It's a once a year fundraising event.
