Bramlett Elementary School Starts a Learning Garden

Sunny Young teaching the students how to properly plant a seed
Thanks to Good Food for Oxford Schools , as well as financial and parental support from the school PTA, Bramlett Elementary School was able to plant several garden beds. 
Kindergarten students now have a chance to see firsthand how food is produced, and are able to grow their own vegetables and at the end of the year they will harvest their own food. 

Sunny Young is the director of EduFood Consulting LLC, which is a school food reform-consulting firm. Young led the students in the act of planting. She believes the garden will drastically improve the health of many students.

“The more connection the students have with their food, the earlier we educate them on the importance of seeds and the importance of growing your own food and knowing where your food comes from the better off our environment will be and the health of our children and families will be.”
