    I think this idea has merit. Many schools have programs while other schools would be struggling for facilities, equipment, expertise, soil and water.
    An initiative that made it possible for “EVERY SCHOOL” to implement would be a positive consideration.

    I tried to start one in Geand Junction and was shot down. So much good learning could help a variety of students learn crossover skills that relate to real life.

    A ‘gardening programme’ is great, as long as they first learn the difference between ‘program’ (computer) and programme (a syllabus, etc).

    Not less than 75 years ago my mother’s cousin who was a salesman instilled in me a love of gardening and growing things that has never left me. Am so pleased to see schools managing to fit in gardening skills today. Start them early and it will stick for life.
