Description The purpose of this action research project was to determine the influence of gardening on the social development of students in Montessori Lower Elementary. Participants were observed in the garden and kitchen to gather information over the course of the one-month study. The project included a pre- and post-survey to establish where each participant started and ended. In addition, the participants were interviewed during the data collection period to further gauge leadership and responsibility skills. Lastly, participants were given writing journal prompts that gave specific, direct, and personal accounts of leadership, responsibility, and kindness. Gardening was found to be a very positive, and to enhance skills of leadership, responsibility, and kindness in Montessori Lower Elementary.
