I am teacher at a small (kindergarten to Grade 4) school in Newmarket. The parent community and fellow teachers at our school would like to purchase a tower garden for our school. Our hope is to use the Tower Garden in each classroom for specific months during the year. For example, one class would start with the Tower Garden and watch vegetables grow from seeds. They would then be able to harvest however they choose. Students would then be able to create recipes using the vegetables. The teachers at our school believe that this will be an amazing teaching tool for across the entire curriculum and create a real sense of teamwork. Our school is also a "Healthy School" and runs the "You're the Chef" program for Grade 4 students. We thought it would be great if we could pick recipes ahead of time and use the vegetables in some of the recipes.
