School gardens are becoming an increasingly popular tool for environmental education. Learning in a school garden offers many benefits, from firsthand experience in applying information learned in school, to nutrition education, to growing in character. School garden curriculum is readily available for students at the elementary level, but is difficult to find at the high school level. This capstone includes curriculum that is easily adaptable and supports a studentled farmers market program, providing garden and nutrition education to students at the high school level through the context of a fullyfunctioning farmers market that is completely run by students.
