You may be surprised to find out just how affordable gardening can be! An indoor classroom garden can cost the same as a 12-pack of sticky notes. A raised bed garden can be funded by a bake sale. Incorporate a business/economics lesson and sell your harvest!

Even the price tags of large-scale gardens may surprise you. In fact, the Bancroft Elementary 5th Graders who helped plant the White House kitchen garden were shocked when the First Lady told them how much it cost (hint: it was about the same amount that the average American family of four spends on groceries in a week).
