Our program began by recruiting and training garden coordinators in 2015 to demonstrate how helpful a dedicated champion can be.
Since our inception, schools have embraced the idea of having a garden coordinator and many have found ways to keep their champion on board.
We continue to support garden coordinators and school gardens through our idea/resource sharing network and monthly meetings.
Our mission is to support teachers, child care professionals, and school leaders to create edible landscapes for learning, by providing help where they need it most: staff, training, and resources.
We help to create impactful educational opportunities that engage children with their natural world, enable them to make healthy choices, and encourage them to help build sustainable communities.
We envision all of our community’s schoolyards serving as a platform to encourage a love learning and a sense of place. We'd love to have you on board to help us support local teachers to turn this vision into reality.
