We would love to see a garden in every schoolyard. For the past 10 years our educational garden coaches have created programs in schools across North Texas, teaching school communities how to grow vegetables and connect curriculum through school gardens. Additionally, we are curriculum consultants for the American Heart Association Teaching Garden Program, Whole Kids Foundation and Slow Food USA School Garden Network.
Our school garden team is a dynamic group of certified educators. With a total of over 75 years of combined educational experience. 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.
Countless studies have been conducted that show positive outcomes from growing school gardens. Gardening supports healthy eating and nutrition, builds positive social and interpersonal skills, increases science achievement and positive attitudes towards learning and increases self-efficacy and enhanced stewardship. Gardening grows healthier, happier kids!
We help connect your school to valuable resources that lead to school garden sustainability. Consultations are available to schools and school districts. We provide training for teachers, school garden teams and administrators. We can help design and build your program, for maximum student & community engagement. Let's grow healthier kids and a healthier schoolyard.
