Tennessee Schools Use Gardens To Teach Math, Science

The Tennessean (3/15, Giordano) profiles a school vegetable garden program at Franklin Elementary School in Franklin, Tennessee, noting that UPS and the American Heart Association "supported the effort with elbow grease and funding to promote healthy eating habits and an understanding of where food comes from. Teachers love the project because of all the curriculum ties, particularly science and math." The piece notes that other schools in the area have similar programs.
