E.J. Schoolyard Garden

Surf City, New Jersey

Our "Digging in the Dirt" project's focus is on healthy eating and increased physical activity. Plant-based education is cross-curricular and can easily be utilized in nutrition, science, mathematics, language arts, social studies, instructional technology, physical education, art and music.

This year's garden additions include: a Digital Garden Trail featuring various QR Codes that allow garden visitors to scan 4 different QRC signs that will provide garden info to be displayed on a Smartphone. This interactive addition will potentially educate visitors on the importance and value the Schoolyard Garden has to the students, teachers and community.

Many thanks to our supporters:

AtlantiCare's Healthy Schools, Healthy Children
LBI PTA
LBI BOE

We have pursued the Certified Naturally Grown inspections because the CNG growing standards are easily incorporated into curriculum ties and CNG growing standards help to ensure a safe product and safe venue for student to consume fruits and veggies in our schoolyard garden.
