Veggie U is dedicated to increasing children's awareness of healthy food options, and teaching them how real food reaches their plate. We believe children who are exposed to growing their own food are more likely to include vegetables in their diet. Our national non-profit organization supplies Classroom Gardens and a standards based, five-week science program to elementary and special needs students.
Veggie U brings gardening right into classrooms in order to teach plant science and health in a unique, hands-on way. We know that school gardens are awesome learning tools, but are not always practical as they are hampered by weather conditions, school property constraints, and educators' time. Veggie U is part of the school day, and a wonderful tool for teachers regardless of their gardening experience!
