Kitchen Garden Laboratory
The Kitchen Garden Laboratory uses cooking as a prism for learning science — and science as a way to understand healthy eating and nutrition. Its programs promote delicious, nutritious eating for better health outcomes, while fostering food and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) literacy.
The garden is a living laboratory for teaching basic science. As they grow and cook their own food, the children learn about soil science, botany, the role of bees and insects in pollination, agricultural science, nutrition, math, physics, and chemistry.
KGL stays current with the progress in ecoliteracy and innovative programs combining curriculum and health.
