    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     NgaamC of Kyoto, Japan, says students and teachers at her son's elementary school work together to maintain a schoolyard garden. "My son learns a lot from the farm," she says, adding, "I try to encourage my son to visit and water the farm even during the summer."

    Many of the elementary schools in Japan have vegetable cultivation project as their free time activity. They keep a part of the play yard for vegetable farm, and grow various kinds and maintain it by themselves.

    After they get plenty of the harvest, take it into the classroom, investigate it for their biology class, draw pictures of it, and cook it after all.
    Students enjoy the project and learn how to grow what they eat all year round.

    And all students have their own cultivation pots that they grow plants of their choices.
    This year my son, 2nd grader, selected cucumber and he brought his first harvest, a perfect shaped cucumber, back home.
