Review for Real School Gardens, Fort Worth, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thanks to REAL School Gardens and much to my child's delight, watermelons were harvested in our school gardens this Fall! The children got to follow a complete cycle of growth, from seed to fruit, while enjoying a hands on approach. They got to use their math skills (measuring the melons over time, for example) and writing skills (labeling plants and documenting the experience). They got to use scientific inquiry (why is his watermelon bigger than mine) and draw pictures. This is just a small example of what REAL School Gardens is all about. On a much larger scale, they foster multi-dimensional and powerful learning experiences in outdoor learning environments.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & I attended a new school design charrette and a new school garden installation. I created a connection between my place of work and REAL School Gardens so they could start a partnership. I served on their local advisory board.
