"Promoting ownership" Divisional System for growing food

Villages in China distribute rice paddy plots once every 5 years by lucky draw. This system ensures that everyone in the village has a plot. It promotes ownership among villages. Could this system be applied to vegetable gardens. Each semester children could be given a new plot. This short term ownership allows them to learn about specific vegetables. So the time they have finished junior school they will know already know how to grow most foods in the garden.
