The Earth School
The Earth School, one of Slow Food NYC's first Urban Harvest schools utilizes their garden program to teach kids about science, the environment, cooking, nutrition and sustainability. They make crafts with herbs and sell them at craft fairs (raising money for field trips including the Catskills Watershed). They run a community farm stand and donate produce to a local food bank. Gardening is not just about growing food, it teaches so much and creates so much synergy in all different ways.
