The School Yard Garden is a demonstration for everyone, with a focus on teachers or anyone that wants to engage youth. This yard shows ways you can grow food in any size of space, not just a large plot of land. Gardening can be done on gravel, pavement, a field, or in this case, mulch. All you need is a few materials and you can start growing your own produce.
