The Green for Kids program brings gardening into the classroom and cafeteria to get kids green. The program combines edible gardening and interactive and accessible environmental education for our schools. From implementing hydroponic Tower Gardens to partnering with Edible Schoolyard gardens, WITS brings the school garden experience into classrooms and cafeterias with hands-on, experiential learning.
The program allows students and school staff to maintain the school garden, monitor plant growth and development, and participate in harvests. In NYC, WITS partners with the Office of SchoolFood’s Garden to Café program to share produce with cafeteria salad bars and at Garden to Café events.
