School is just around the corner. It harkens the end of summer and beginning of Autumn. I love this weather and this time of the year but for children heading back to school; it is filled with apprehension.
I read somewhere that one in ten children is bullied.It could be more or less depending on the source.
For children who are bullied, school is no longer a place of learning. Studies have shown that gardening has a therapeutic effect for those who bully others and those who are bullied. Incorporating a curriculum that include gardening can be one of many ways a school can make a difference. And bullying is occurring in affluent communities as well as poor communities.
Hopefully, the programs that are in already place will inspire one more child to love gardening.
