Abstract or Summary
  • Participation in school garden programs improves health outcomes in K-12 student and is an effective tool for experiential learning. Although most schools in the Corvallis School District have a school garden, none are currently integrated into the curriculum. Using a cross-sectional,online survey, I learned that the majority of parents of K-12 students in the Corvallis School District would like a school garden that is integrated into the curriculum or is offered as elective. Based on these results, I have identified three U.S. school districts that have successfully and sustainably integrated school gardens into the school district wellness policies. My recommendations are that the Corvallis School District funds a School Garden Coordinator at the district level, develops a holistic district-wide wellness policy that includes school gardens, and partners with community organizations to create a curriculum that utilizes school gardens. Key Words: K-12 schools, School curriculum, School gardens, Sustainable
