Bane Elementary to receive experimental teaching garden
Bane Elementary will receive an experimental Teaching Garden, one of eight nationally and the only one planned for Texas.
The American Heart Association's Teaching Garden program will give students a hands-on learning experience about nutritional food choices.
Students will learn how to plant seeds, nurture the growing plants and harvest the food.
The Teaching Garden model targets elementary and middle school-aged students.
As part of the initial rollout, several new Teaching Gardens will be completed by early 2011 with hundreds more to be announced later in the year and beyond.
