The Village School Community Garden
By: The Village School Environmental Science Class
Goals & Reasons
“Accessible natural areas may be vital for mental health in our rapidly urbanizing world,” said by a professor in environmental science at Stanford
It can lead to a lower risk of depression
Gardening strengthens your immune system.
Nature improves short-term memory
While you're outdoors basking in the sun, you'll also soak up plenty of vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. In turn, calcium helps keep your bones strong and your immune system healthy.

In one study, students were divided into two groups to take a memory test, one group took a walk around the city, while the other half took a walk among trees.

The results show that those who walked among trees did 20% better than their first time, however, the grades of other group did not improve.
It restores mental energy
One study found that people's mental energy bounced back even when they just look at pictures of nature.
Also, natural beauty can elicit feelings of awe, which is one of the surest way to experience a mental boost.
What types of plants should we add to our garden to make it reflective of the diversity we have at Village?
We will send out a google survey
