The Garden of Art
Kenyon, Karen
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v111 n7 p38-39 Mar 2012
This article describes a garden that grows more than vegetables. The grounds of McKinley Elementary School in San Diego, California, was a neglected area for years, until recently when an organic garden was planted to revive and brighten the dreary area behind the school's bungalow classrooms. Each grade now has its own wood-bordered plot where a variety of vegetables and flowers are planted. The garden helps children understand where food comes from and what is in season. Now, thanks to teacher Richard Kenyon and a community arts program, it has also become a garden of art. (Contains 2 online resources.)
