Tibbott School students growing alongside school's edible garden
BOLINGBROOK – Tibbott Elementary School students returned from summer vacation to find their “edible garden” flourishing with a wealth of produce.
A sanctuary boasting more than 20 different herbs, vegetables and fruits, the 2,820-square-foot edible garden is more than just a plot to harvest crops, it is a living laboratory in which students learn about sustainability, nutrition and the ecosystem.
A pilot program administered by the Valley View School District Nutrition Services in August 2012, Tibbott boys and girls spent last spring tilling seeds in their seven planter boxes behind the school, eagerly waiting to view the fruits of their labor.
