School Garden Guidelines

Through 2014, in partnership with Lynn Public Schools and the district school garden coordinator, Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance helped draft school garden guidelinesĀ to enable the construction and use of school gardens on school properties and codify their rules and upkeep procedures, including the creation of a school garden council at each participating school.

To date, Lynn now has at least three active school gardens across elementary schools in the district that allow students to connect standards-based academics to hands-on engagement growing food and learning from their natural surroundings.
