across the 3 no-garden days. The mean proportion of time spent in sedentary, light, moderate, and vigorous physical activities was calculated for each student and then averaged by school. Paired t tests allowed for the comparison of garden- and no-garden-day physical activity and sedentary time at each

. Light activity was set at average acceleration between 50 and 150 m g , moderate activity at average acceleration between 150 and 500 m g , and vigorous physical activity (VPA) at average acceleration >500 m g . These threshold choices are supported by a methodological study by Hildebrand et al. 22
