School Gardens & Greenhouse

Students who were exposed to a garden:

  • Increased fruit and vegetable consumption by up to 1.5 servings per day (Duncan et al, Coventry University, 2015).
  • Exhibited a 50% increase in the average number of vegetables they chose from the lunch line and 43% increase in the average number of vegetables they ate(Parmer et al, Auburn University, 2009).
  • Significantly increased the average number of vegetable varieties they consumed each month, including those they didn't grow (Ratcliffe et al, Tufts University, 2011).
