All students in K-6th grade visit the Youth Garden Project during the spring and fall for Garden Classroom Fieldtrips. These experiential education opportunities explore mainly science concepts through lessons that correlate with Utah Core Curriculum.
Students are here for 90 minutes and during that time learn concepts through interdisciplinary education methods using the garden as a learning tool. Some of the lessons include topics like:
The Scientific Method
The 5 Senses
Nutrients & the Color of Vegetables
Heat, Light, and Plants
“…I think your programs are perfect. You give such a great opportunity to our students- many of whom would not know a garden without YGP! I really think you positively impact their food choices.” – Sarah LaBrec, 6th grade teacher
