A sustainably designed garden will demonstrate the best practices in growing food, as well as innovative components that support learning math, the arts and biological sciences. It will incorporate used and recycled materials, unusual and artistic components and simple messaging to encourage everyone to give gardening a try, practice healthy eating and choose a fun, active life-style. The Edible Garden will advocate the edible landscape and healthy food in our communities.
• This garden will provide opportunities for teacher training in math, biology, ecology, writing and art in a garden environment. An endowed garden coordinator position will address outreach to underserved populations in the region.
