Application of concepts and process, evaluation and problem solving strategies will be used in the garden when: watering, drainage, pest control, fertility of soil, and growth and production of crops from seed to transplant and harvest. Public speaking skills and leadership will be developed and challenged through competitions and events.

Students will benefit from the development of their leadership and public speaking skills for future opportunities in post-secondary education and work experience. Another benefit will be student understanding of how to grow healthy food that they are proud of. Possible work experience could be at any of our 5 Urban farms here in West Sacramento.
