Abstract


A school vegetable garden is an educational strategy to attract students towards gardening activities. The garden engages students by providing a dynamic environment where they can observe, discover, experiment, nurture, and learn. It provides opportunities for young minds to understand the basic lessons of agriculture and develop an affinity towards it. The present research was undertaken to explore the effectiveness of school vegetable garden as perceived by students, the knowledge level and attitude of students. The development of life skills was perceived as most significant by the students. The knowledge and attitude towards school vegetable garden were at medium level for majority of the students. Kruskal Wallis H test was used to analyse the group variability among schools for knowledge level, attitude and perceived effectiveness. The results indicated significant variation among schools with respect to knowledge and attitude while no remarkable difference was observed for perceived effectiveness.
