Abruzzi School Garden
Attended by mostly children of farmers, the mission to establish a Teaching Garden at the Abruzzi school, is to stimulate learning via the lens of agriculture, to provide a solution to augmenting the quality of education, and to inspire successive generations of teachers and students to become innovative stewards of their future.
A curriculum based school garden serving as a living laboratory for all subjects and the building and care of the garden as a collaborative effort by the school community is its most defining narrative
With careful planning and implementation of the garden program, organized systematically over several years, the overarching goal of the establishment of this garden, is to complement and enhance the present curriculum so that by the end of tenth grade, all students will have developed the aptitude to enter colleges of their choice, in fields including science, agriculture, technology and the arts.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
