Schooltuinen - School Gardens
In the Netherlands the school garden is a well known concept. Often it is not a garden at the school, but a special collection of small plots of land where children can go in schooltime to grow their own vegetables. It is an educational tool
The schooltuin is a voluntary part of the elementary school curriculum. It is mainly aimed at children that live in places without gardens or go to schools that don't have the space for it. I don't think I had one when growing up, but that is because we had one at home. Maybe other Dutchies on the platform can share their experience?
