The Teaching Garden & Demonstration Kitchen
The Wimberly's Roots Teaching Garden and Kitchen is the perfect launching pad for student-directed inquiry. Interested students quickly ask a wide variety of questions, many of which could lead to in depth observations or experimental manipulations. Children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and express a preference for these foods. Our garden programs include lessons on nutrition, resulting in greater knowledge about healthy eating. The students will also have the opportunity to learn healthy cooking techniques with the fresh vegetables they grow!
