Tilling Fallow Land: How school gardens can be integral to the next generation of public schools.

BY ELIAS ATTEA
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 12, 2015

For a child, a garden is more than a greenspace.  It can be a place for peace, learning, and ownership. School gardens have been a revisited movement that have caught much momentum in the United States, and Pond Gap Elementary is a local advocate.  Horticultural pedagogy is more than just seeing plants grow.  School gardens can be an alternative to a more natural and tangible outlet for school curriculum, therapy, and physical and emotional development.
