Norcross, GA--  (submitted by American Heart Association) Greater Atlanta Christian School of Norcross, GA is planting an American Heart Association Teaching Garden as part of an education initiative to help build healthy bodies and minds. The Plant Day Celebration was held on March 17, 2011 at Greater Atlanta Christian and included a planting session for the students throughout the day.

The Greater Atlanta Christian School Teaching Garden was created using American Heart Association science and nutrition guidelines coupled with information from gardening and education experts, all thanks to Teaching Garden founder Kelly Meyer. The program combines nutrition education with garden based learning. It is a real-life laboratory where students learn how to plant seeds, nurture growing plants, harvest produce and ultimately understand the value of good eating habits. Numerous studies have shown that participation in school garden programs can have a positive impact on student’s attitudes toward fruits and vegetables. Greater Atlanta Christian School staff and students are excited to cultivate healthy kids, who have proven to perform higher.
