Learning Garden

The Community Kitchen Learning Garden is Winnetka's school garden program. Learning in our organic garden integrates classroom studies with hands-on experiences in the natural world and encourages enthusiasm and wonder. Garden activities engage students in standards-based lessons interwoven with grade-appropriate math, science, social studies, art, and a healthy dose of fun.

The Community Kitchen Learning Garden also encourages wellness and healthy eating with new food tastings. Rather than attempting to achieve nutrition education through a textbook. The Community Kitchen Learning Garden provides a multi-sensory learning experience through planting, watering, harvesting and eating nutritious food...grown from the ground up.
