The case for school gardens as viable health promotion interventions
This workshop will explore the role of school gardens as a viable health promotion resource, and at the same time supporting sustainable food futures. It will examine the growing body of evidence from international literature and report on an investigation into school gardens in three distinct geographic Queensland regions. The potential positive impacts on student nutrition, physical activity and social interaction will be discussed, along with the issues associated with school gardens and suggestions for broader adoption of this health-promoting activity.
