Garden-based learning is an educational strategy that utilizes school gardens to supplement instruction in a variety of disciplines.  School gardens provide an atmosphere that incorporates hands-on activities and strengthens academic, personal, and social skills.  In addition, school gardens allow children to develop life skills in areas such as nutrition, leadership, and decision making.  CNS research includes the development and evaluation of garden-enhanced nutrition education curricula and programs.
