This brings tears to my eyes! I am 27 years old and attended Peterson Middle School for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. They didn't have anything like this when I was there, it was a very traditional school. It is wonderful to see the school broadening their horizons and doing what is best for their students. I am now a classroom teacher working toward my masters at the UW and just completed a certificate in ecology, community, and outdoor education. Gardening and education play a vital role in a students ability to make healthy choices for themselves and for their planet. I can't say it enough... this is wonderful! I have also started a blog for teachers who are just beginning to take their students outside, who want to start a garden or compost system and integrate getting into the dirt into their curriculum.
