Seven Oak Middle School has two greenhouses where they start seeds for planting in the teaching garden outside the classroom.
The students prepare the soil, plant the starts, and tend the garden until harvest when the produce goes to the school kitchen
to be prepared for use on the salad bars. Many subjects are taught to students including Math, Science, and Writing. Math
scores have improved along with attendance and self esteem Students have ownership in the produce that is prepared for the
salad bar, and are eating more vegetables! Planting Seeds of Change has a mission to improve the health of students and their
families through organic gardening instruction, thus establishing lifelong healthy eating habits.
