Science teacher Ann Cruickshank, in Bradenton Florida, has discovered that sub-irrigated planters like the EarthBox help her teach “good science”. She uses them as a teaching aid not just outdoors but in her classroom.Unlike in-ground gardening, the EarthBoxes are portable so that they can be growing plants the year round regardless of the season.

I am a 6th grade science teacher and have been using the Earthboxes with my students for a number of years. The students have loved growing and harvesting the vegetables. This year, however, I used the Earthbox curriculum to supplement my teaching and it was wonderful.
It is based on good science and is very teacher friendly. I would highly recommend it to other teachers.
