Just like reading, writing and arithmetic, Rapides Academy for Advanced Academics sixth graders are learning how beneficial sustainable gardening is with the help of the Good Food Project.

The Good Food Project is a program of the Food Bank of Central Louisiana that distributes food grown in its demonstration garden to clients and teaches community members how to grow their own food. The program also partners with schools to grow their own gardens and teach students about gardening, food preparation and health.

Students are able to implement the garden with what they’ve learned in other subjects like English language arts, math, science and history, said Jessica Smith, teacher garden sponsor.
