Help us create a page that links to the many community resources around food. They could be about gardening, livestock raising, composting, cooking, food preservation, nutrition, food education, food banks, community gardens, community kitchens, land for farmers, farmers looking for land—-it could be many things.
Send us your ideas, please include a descriptive sentence or two and a link to the website (or other contact information). We’ll add them in no particular order until we have enough to organize.
The Boise Urban Garden School helps children make meaningful connections between global environmental issues and real choices they make every day about the food they eat—choices that affect their health, the environment, the local economy, and both personal and social responsibility.
Through hands-on, inquiry-based learning that encourages participants to ask questions, gather information, and investigate possibilities, BUGS guides students to reflect on the question, “Where does our food come from, and why does it matter?”
BUGS cultivates a love of learning by providing unique opportunities.
- Hands-on experiences with nature, gardening, and preparing fresh foods
- Empowerment through creating and sustaining a small
business at the BUGS produce stand
- Growth through a variety of integrated art, literacy, and
- Outreach to the community as students share the
harvest and their experiences
