Elementary Garden Club
 
The APA Elementary School Garden Club is an outdoor classroom where teachers can enhance the delivery and understanding of core curriculum subjects in the form of hands-on gardening.   School gardens give students and community a broader understanding of the natural world and their food sources; promotes environmental stewardship and deep bonds with nature; gives students a sense of connectedness to the eco-system that includes them and the community.  The present generation is largely disconnected from agriculture, nutrition and in many cases the natural world.  Studies show that experiences in the garden infinitely improve students' knowledge about and attitudes toward eating vegetables and increase their consumption of these foods.   Gardens also teach students tolerance, agriculture, how to nourish themselves, importance of stewardship, appreciation for the natural systems, observation, critical and independent thought, achievement of life skills, encouragement of community and social development and sense of place.
