Brief Summary:
This study builds on several years of working with Navajo communities to increase gardening and healthy eating. In collaboration with the Dream Diné Charter School in Shiprock, NM, the investigators propose to develop a school garden intervention to increase fruit and vegetable consumption and reduce risk for obesity among Navajo families. The intervention will integrate: an enhanced school garden plot; a curriculum for elementary school children on gardening and healthy eating; and family engagement in the curriculum and at community gardening fairs.
