What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Garden-Based Education

We provide engaging hands-on, outdoor, nature-based lessons for public school students in grades Transitional Kindergarten-8th. The experiential lessons build from one year to the next on important core earth and life science topics, such as photosynthesis, life cycles, ecology, and the scientific method. Science -standards aligned lesson are relevant to today's environmental challenges and provide excellent hands-on, outdoor learning experiences.

Lessons are real-world and interdisciplinary, meet both major content areas and instructional model for Next Generation Science Standards, and intertwine life and earth science with social studies/history, math, and nutrition.

With help from local businesses, service organizations, students and parents, we design, install and maintain both native habitat and edible educational gardens that serve as ecological laboratories.
