The summer reading lists are out, and for those interested in gardening as a means of better nutrition, education and engagement, The Power of a Plant by Stephen Ritz is a good read. A teacher in some of the country’s poorest schools, Ritz documents how incorporating gardening and plants into his curriculum played a key role in increasing the graduation rate of students from 17% to 100% and improving attendance to 93% at his South Bronx high school.
INMED has experienced equally impressive outcomes with its school gardens in Brazil, Peru, Jamaica and South Africa. Learn more at https://inmed.org/what-we-do/.
