As you can tell by our blog, here at The Educators’ Spin On It, we believe that the garden is a true outdoor classroom. My kids wake up and race outside to check on their growing tomatoes and it melts my heart. They know where their food grows and how it grows. They have even started to check out their own gardening books at the library to find out more about plants. Our gardens are truly a place where math, science, literacy and art take place.
