ABSTRACT INFORMATION
'Math in the Garden'

Learn how to teach math while you garden. Square Foot Gardening was created to make gardening simpler. Square Foot Gardening is an all-natural, organic way to garden. A Square Foot Garden is a raised planting box filled with a special soil blend and divided in 1-ft. squares. Each square is planted with a different vegetable, herb, or flower. Depending on how much space the mature plant needs, you may grow anywhere from 1 to 16 plants in any given space. Come learn how easy it is to incorporate math into your garden.
