Gardening is a popular 4-H activity throughout Africa. Many of the materials in this section are from a package of materials titled “Cultivating Learning with School Gardens.” But no matter where a 4-H club or member plants a garden — at a school, in the village, at a community building, or at a homestead — the science and lessons are the same. These materials were developed by the United States Department of Agriculture with funding from the US Agency for International Development. They were tested by primary and secondary students in several African countries.
