STEAM in the Garden!

Gardening is more than a way to sustain life by feeding the hungry, it is a way to learn. J14 has implemented the Kitchen Community STEM gardening curriculum in the program to get participants outside. This program will allow them to develop skills and serve the community. This curriculum has been divided into three levels

Gardening for K-2
Gardening is more than a way to sustain life by feeding the hungry, it is a way to learn. J14 has implemented the Kitchen Community STEM gardening curriculum in the program to get participants outside. This program will allow them to develop skills and serve the community. This curriculum has been divided into three levels.
3 - 5 Grade Gardening
These students will become familiar with gardening vocabulary, learn the essentials of growing a garden, and help to care for the plants in the garden.
Grades 6 - 8 Garden Care
All participants will have an opportunity to plant, grow, water, and harvest in the learning garden.

 

J14 has been fortunate to partner with area church community gardens. The collaborating has allowed J14 to turn the community garden into a learning garden for J14 participants while still serving the community.
