Federal Way Public Schools Camelot Elementary will receive a $2,000 school garden grant through Whole Kids Foundation, a Whole Foods Market foundation, providing an edible educational garden available to the school’s students and staff.

Gardens are becoming an increasingly used educational tool as school gardens are shown to improve children’s behavior and performance at school and improve their attitudes and appreciation for the environment.

Additionally, only 2 percent of children eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, but children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables and to be more knowledgeable about nutrition.
