School gardens as outdoor classrooms

Listen to this story
School gardens are more than a source of local food for the cafeteria. These gardens, planted and tended by students and staff, are being integrated into the educational curriculum to teach children not only about plants, nature and the environment, but other subjects as well. Danielle Pipher, a farm to school educator in Vermont, says gardens can teach kids about history, economics, social studies, math and art. Pipher will lead a workshop on school gardens on March 30th at St. Lawrence University. She spoke with Todd Moe about how to start a school or community garden.
