Nearly 100 learning gardens planned for Atlanta-area schools

Vegetable gardens that will help students learn about healthy foods and fresh produce are going up in 40 Atlanta public schools, with one of the first opened at Centennial Place Elementary on Friday.

Foods grown in the gardens are incorporated into daily meals, and the gardens also can be used to teach lessons about math, science, social studies, health and language arts.

The Captain Planet Foundation plans to install a total of nearly 100 such gardens in elementary and middle schools across metro Atlanta, including in Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties.
