SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT OF LANE COUNTY

Grow. Eat. Learn.

aka SGP   |   Eugene, OR   |  www.schoolgardenproject.org

Mission

We help Lane County schools develop onsite vegetable gardens where we teach children standards-based science and the basics of growing food, using the garden as an outdoor laboratory. We also provide material and curriculum resources; professional development for educators; volunteer recruiting and training; and maintenance support to sustain and expand gardens. We recognize that committing to equity, diversity, and inclusion maximizes our potential by building a resourceful community that celebrates its unique strengths, talents, and perspectives.
