USDA’s Garden Project

The USDA has developed a pilot program to create vegetable gardens in elementary schools.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced a pilot program aimed at education schoolchildren about food production and nutrition. The People’s Garden School Pilot Program, which will be developed and executed by Washington State University, will create vegetable gardens at 70 elementary schools in four states. “Learning where food comes from and what fresh food tastes like, and the pride of growing and serving your own fruits and vegetables, are life-changing experiences,” says Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “Engaging kids in our efforts to end childhood hunger and curb childhood obesity is critical if we are going to succeed.”
