So the trend in education is a focus on reducing obesity. Through more activity and better eating, schools want to focus on helping students develop better life-long lifestyles. One of the areas we see many schools move toward is the creation of school gardens to grow vegetables. We all know kids will take more ownership of something if they are actively involved. I recently found a great resource to help in the process…gosproutit.com. Right away, I would want to disclose that the site is run by Miracle Gro. They will surely put some advertising into the site, but for the gist of it, you will be fine.
What the site does is help you manage your basic garden vegetables. From when to plant seeds or sprouts to a watering schedule, this site idiot proofs growing your basic veggies. You will not find a large sampling of vegetables, but it will help with the majority of popular ones like tomatoes, peppers, squash, and potatoes. I plan to use it this year, and will report back on how it works.
