School Gardens Project

About the Project

We are starting or expanding 10 school gardens this year! After recognizing the public’s interest in implementing gardens at schools, we’ve decided to listen. The goal of this project is to educate and increase students’ exposure to how food is grown and where real food comes from.

Eligibility Criteria

    in the months of October, November and December 
  • Commitment to complete 2 brief evaluation surveys

  • Plans to integrate local food into classroom educational learning activities

Each school will receive:

  • Age-appropriate garden lesson plans
  • Building materials for raised garden beds
  • Compost/soil
  • Seeds
  • Plant starts
  • Basic gardening tools
  • A network of educators to help along the way

There is also an option to establish an indoor hydroponic garden instead.
