Establishing a Personal Connection to the Food We Eat
Edible education belongs not just to the school but students will also take ownership over their program and the plants that they cultivate. This lesson begins that process, encouraging students to define why edible education and learning about food production is important to them.
Drainage is imperative for optimal plant development. Indoor operations like the Edible Learning Lab must pay close attention to drainage to avoid overwatering. This lesson uses soil samples to evaluate drainage in the raised planters.
Soil requires maintenance. It needs to be amended and cared for to preserve the ability to cultivate healthy harvests. This lesson explores the composition of the soil and reveals what aspects demonstrate health.
