Students from GW Stout (and an alumna) come to the table for a lively discussion about their fourth grade gardening program.  Facilitated by fourth grade teacher Julie Dunning-Farmer and County Commissioner Alicia Edwards, these students detail their gardening adventures, from breaking up asphalt seven years ago to cultivate their school property, to making salsa and pumpkin pies from their harvests.  As they discuss the evolution of their garden plots and their discoveries of fresh, new food and recipes, these kids also reflect on the myriad benefits of their outdoor classroom.  Finally, by emphasizing community support and interpersonal connection, these students from Stout inspire hope for the future.
