Bane students to reap the benefits of new 'teaching garden'
Bane Elementary School and the American Heart Association will host a Plant Day Celebration on Wednesday, April 20, at 10 a.m.
The celebration will unveil the first teaching garden in Texas as part of an education initiative to help build healthy bodies and minds. More than 400 students will gather to build garden bed boxes, load soil into wheelbarrows and plant vegetable seedlings.
Representatives from the American Heart Association and Bane Elementary will host a 10-minute opening ceremony before the students get started.
The Teaching Garden was created using American Heart Association science and nutrition guidelines coupled with information from gardening and education experts. The program combines nutrition education with garden-based learning. It is a real-life laboratory where students learn how to plant seeds, nurture growing plants, harvest produce and understand the value of good eating habits.
The Plant Day Celebration will be held at Bane Elementary, located at 5805 Kaiser St.
