Here are our ten favorite activities for introducing New York City students to the basic principles of urban gardening. We love to challenge them with plant-to-people connections through nutrition, stewardship, and environmental advocacy. Connections to practical math, history, literacy and observed art create a dynamic gardening learning experience that makes the sciences COME TO LIFE.
