Our school garden team is a dynamic group of certified educators. We have wide understanding of how children learn, how schools operate, and the importance of connecting academic objectives to all that we do. We utilize a cross-curricular methodology, working with garden leaders, teachers, administrators and school districts to bring real world, experiential learning to life, through hands on lessons in the garden. Gardens grow healthy kids, healthy environments and healthy communities. Just ask us how.
The monarch migration is threatened by pesticide use and habitat loss. Students and teachers are working together, both in and out of the classroom, to grow local school gardens providing fresh food to the community while protecting pollinators and creating monarch waystations.

"I like the garden because it is fun to work outside and in nature."
"I like the garden because we get to help people in need. I like the fruits and veggies in the garden."
"I love the garden because of the people."
"I love the garden because a lot of things grow there and you get to see the chickens. "
"I like the chickens."
"I like the garden because you get to dig and get dirty."
"More kids and staff are interested in healthy ways of eating. It is a terrific way to tie in what we are learning in science and social studies especially, but also math and language arts as well. Some of our kids would not have the experience of growing food and taking care of living things if it weren't for our farm and the ladies who make it all happen. Many of our kids develop better eating habits and attitudes towards eating food (veggies especially) that they might not have otherwise considered."
"Love it and the new addition of the chickens! A real asset to our school."
"I am especially proud of how many people have joined together to make a beautiful garden for our kids. I
think it adds value to the outside experience for the kids and gets them to think an urban garden can
and should work. It is a great teaching tool. We deeply appreciate the garden team's work. Thank you."
"...I consider this garden a HIGHLY POSITIVE addition to the school."
