Learn about the origins of the plants available for your garden.
Plant a seed and raise/maintain plant to full maturity. Reap a harvest. You can give harvest to needy, community or have a family dinner.
You have an opportunity to earn 30 hours of service learning if you follow the instructions:
7 weeks of plant growth (or however long it takes for plant to produce a crop) x 4 hours a week (daily care of plant) = 28 hours; 2 hours to write a reflection.
Your photos will document your commitment to the process.
Build community ties and family bonding with gardening. Learn about geographical origins of certain plants.
Analyze maps, globes, satellite images, photographs, or diagrams using the following:
• Geographical information about the world’s countries, cities, and environments
