Hudson Valley Seed

Hudson Valley Seed

Hudson Valley Seed has sprouted a creative school gardening collaboration with several school districts in the region designed to engage students in nutrition and healthy eating habits.

In Beacon City School District, more than 1,500 elementary school students are learning to grow and love vegetables in their own school gardens and lessons integrated into the academic curriculum. Students' taste preferences begin to change when they taste raw and simply cooked vegetables they grew. The students then vote on which recipes to include in school cafateria menus.

Hudson Valley Seed is just one of several organizations addressing food security, nutrition and childhood obesity at its roots with positive and affirming programs.
