An elementary school in Alberta, Canada, is seeking to build a school garden that will be used to help students learn about nutrition and fitness. The school recently won a statewide contest, securing grant money to build the outdoor learning space. The initiative follows the release of data showing students at the school were not eating enough fruits and vegetables. "When students grow their own food and prepare their own food, they're much more likely to try it," school health facilitator Lauren Robb said.
