I'm so happy to see this growing trend. Of course, my kids "help" in the garden, then bring the food in to eat for dinner, but so many have no understanding of the connection.
NYC School Teams Up With Columbia University to Build a Rooftop Garden & Classroom
Although PS 84, a New York City elementary school on the Upper West Side, is just a few blocks from Central Park, its teachers and parents have long been frustrated by the students' lack of connection with the natural world. But over the last two years, the school has undergone something of a transformation. It now has three gardens, and is working towards its most ambitious project yet: a rooftop garden, which it is building with the help of graduate students at nearby Columbia University.
