School & College Program for Sustainable Production and Consumption Education
School garden programs are multi-intervention packages incorporating agriculture, nutrition and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) education, and community outreach to improve community food security and nutrition. Good nutrition relies on healthy food systems, access to health services, and clean environments. A school garden can be regarded as a small food system; a healthy garden can include the production of plant and animal food and be designed to address biodiversity, healthy diets and eco-friendly environments. These gardens can be used as platforms for environmental education, nutrition behaviour change communication, and to promote community engagement.
