The Got Dirt? Gardening Initiative trains teachers and childcare providers to start and maintain youth and school gardens. The class and related teaching aids give teachers and childcare providers the skills they need to establish and sustain successful school garden programs, even with Wisconsin’s short growing season.
School gardens create an active learning environment and increase children's knowledge and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
In just the 2009/2010 school year, 122 garden sites were established after the Got Dirt? workshops!
