Why we do this:

Farming the Future believes that agriculture is one of the most truly enriching fields for learning. Seeing plants grow from seed to their edible end product is a wonderful and empowering experience for students. Agriculture teaches science by connecting with chemistry, physics, biology and engineering in units that go far beyond just planting seeds. 




Gardens have been proven to affect change in a wide variety of fields including overall health. Integrating gardens with core STEM concepts and comprehensive lessons has the potential to improve both academic achievement and social emotional learning. Studies have shown that including gardens in the learning environment supports:

  • Enhanced overall academic achievement in K-12 settings, including grades and test scores.
  • Increases engagement and positive attitudes about learning.
  • Improved knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding food literacy, nutrition, healthy behaviors, as well as increased fruit and vegetable consumption.
    • Children who garden are 44.2 percent more likely to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.
    • Gardens have the potential to minimize diet-related diseases in childhood, such as obesity and diabetes, through the promotion of eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
    • Increased physical activity during the day.
    • A demonstrated willingness to try new foods and healthier options in both early childhood and K-12 age groups.
  • Providing children with opportunities for social and emotional growth; improved life skills, self-esteem, social skills and behavior.

Kits available with lessons covering K-12 learning levels. Add on different lesson sets to utilize your growing kit for multiple levels of learners in one home.
