Kindergarteners & The Full Cycle of a chard

What are we learning in the garden? What are valuable lessons to be taken away from garden experiences? How about understanding the full cycle of a plant?

These kindergarten students planted chard seeds months ago, transplanted them, watched them grow, tasted them, tore them out and chopped them up for the compost bin, then planted new chards to replace them. Sustainability, organic gardening, these are lessons these students are learning at an amazingly young age. The skill of growing food- it grows students as well.
