  1. This is really great step taken by USDA to build nature friendly habits in students by growing plants, vegetables and fruits. This will not only increase the interest of kids towards gardening and farming but also help them to take care of our globe by planting trees. Another way to spread awareness among students is to ask them for writing essays on desired topics.
