Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important topic in today’s society. Future generations must be cognizant of impending environmental issues and have the wherewithal to actively address these societal tribulations. As future educators, it is our responsibility to provide learners with the knowledge and skills required in becoming an active part of repairing our planet. Society as a whole benefits from having an environmentally conscious citizen who can make an informed impact on social issues involving natural resources. A garden can be a powerful tool in promoting outdoor education, positive peer relationships, community, restoration, and sustainability. We propose teachers with access to the appropriate resources, such as lesson plans, school support, and committed personnel, can educate students on ecological conservation through school gardens.
