Organic school gardens positively impact youth

A new study shows the danger of pesticides in our kids food:

“Exposure to pesticides used on common kid-friendly foods — including frozen blueberries, fresh strawberries and celery — appears to boost the chances that children will be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, new research shows.” (MSNBC)

This kind of news grants fresh urgency to the school garden movement. SCLT’s after-school education programs, and other similar programs established or starting across America, empower kids about food through teaching them a lifelong skill – organic food growing practices.

Help your kids: buy (or grow!) organic foods to keep them safe!
