School Gardens

The School/Youth Garden Support Network (SYGSN) is a partnership program of KEYS 4 Healthy Kids and WVU Kanawha Extension developed to meet the needs of youth gardens in Kanawha County. Services provided by the network include: agricultural how-to, curriculum advice, design consulting, training, grant writing and materials support, CONNECTIONS…educators and volunteers working together to reconnect children with nature!

School gardens are cross-curricular teaching tools that engage students and teachers in hands-on, practical application of the common core standards. Plus they get kids up and moving and increase the likelihood of eating fresh veggies! Check out the pictures below!
