The seeds to Plate Curriculum

We at Seeds to Plate, Mark Twain Middle School, believe that school garden programs foster a deep understanding of academic subjects by connecting traditional content areas to the natural world. Our academically integrated curriculum was created for sixth to eighth graders using the California Common Core, Next Generation Science, and California Health Standards by experienced educators and master gardeners. The curriculum includes over 90 lessons, most of which have been piloted multiple times, in all content areas, including: History, English Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Health, Nutrition/Food Literacy, Water and Sustainability, Seasonal and Multicultural topics, and Art.

Our free lessons are embedded in our “Seeds to Plate Curriculum Toolkit” which includes two sections: (1) an introduction to school garden programs and an overview of our curriculum, and (2) our curriculum database of over 90 lesson plans.
