Whole Kids Foundation (WKF): What is the SGSO Network’s approach to advancing children’s nutrition and wellness?
School Garden Support Organization (SGSO) Network : The SGSO Network believes in the power of school gardens! We know that when kids engage in school gardens they increase their fruit and vegetable consumption. We also know that school gardens make students more engaged learners, more resilient and empowered youth, and more engaged in the natural world - all factors that contribute to overall wellness. As a result, we seek to grow the number of gardens at schools, the number of teachers using gardens as a teaching tool, the number of students learning in schools, and the number of institutions and policies that support the sustainability of school gardens. We do that by streamlining resources in our Promising Practices and newsletter, providing professional development through our webinars, and by facilitating networking opportunities for school garden professionals at in-person gatherings, through our Peer Learning Communities, and virtually via our online Google forum.
