Poe & Grow Garden

Did you know that the North Carolina Science Curriculum supports gardening education for grades K-6? Because gardens engage students by providing a dynamic environment to observe, discover, experiment, nurture and learn, we have compiled this site to help you establish a new or enhance an existing garden (School & Community Garden Resources).

Enjoy your journey through the Poe and Grow Garden…

ChooseMyPlate.govThe Poe Center for Health Education is a part of the SNAP-Ed Connection, grant funded by USDA, to help improve the nutrition of North Carolina citizens. The interactive Poe and Grow Garden is designed with you, your school and community in mind. As you roll over the elements of our garden, you will learn helpful facts and be guided to valuable resources. As the tree changes with the seasons, many components of the garden will also change to reflect what to expect in the garden during each season.

This material was funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — SNAP. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provides nutrition assistance to people with low income. It can help you buy nutritious foods for a better diet. To find out more, call 1-800-221-5689.
