        George Washington Carver and the Sweet Potato | Project Learning Garden

        Students will harvest sweet potatoes in fall, planted by the previous year’s class, and learn about George Washington Carver’s contributions to agriculture by replicating and trying some of his inventions and recipes with this learning resource from Captain Planet's Learning Gardens Program. In spring, they will plant a new crop of sweet potatoes and demonstrate some of Dr. Carver’s best practices for farming, maintaining soil fertility, and avoiding plant diseases. In the process, they will count the harvest and identify plant parts.
