Third-grade teacher Deborah D. Blair submitted these student blogs from Logos Academy. The theme (in honor of the Hope Street Garden and Learning Lab): Why Do You Want a Garden?
I want a school garden because it is a peaceful and pretty sight. It would help us because some kids eat junk all the time and need to have healthy foods in their bodies. — Arlette Morales, Grade 4
I want a school garden because it’s fun to have a garden and you get to see many plants grow. You can be more healthy by eating vegetables. It could clean the air and this could also make older and younger kids get closer to nature. — Sophia Juiliano, Grade 6
I want a garden in my school because in our Fruit and Vegetable program we can have fresh fruits and vegetables. I think the people in the school would like the idea that they grew great tasting food. They would probably be encouraged by that and may possibly grow their own garden at home. Another reason is they could be more active outside growing these gardens. If they grow gardens at home they will be eating healthy foods there as well and there will be less chances of students getting sick. This also means they would attend school more and be smarter. — Naelli Ann Soto, Grade 5Read More
