GOALS for the "Green Paws" Garden Club
* For students to work together to create a fun, safe and beautiful learning environment that the whole school can use, and be able to feel proud of that. * Experience that eating good food feels great, contributing to the development of the lifelong habit of making healthy choices. * The energy and care you put into a garden comes back to you in the form of great food and experiences. The conscious effort to care for something is rewarding in many ways. Gardens are great place to "see" hard work pay off. * Further develop executive function and long term planning. Garden thinking requires a lot of planning around seasons, thinking ahead about how much space a plant will need, where it should go in terms of sunlight and then remember information to help plan in the future. * A "sense of place" learning experience, seasons, nature, weather etc. Helps us feel grounded in our community.
