School Gardens

School Gardens

We believe that nature is the best teacher and that our responsibility as eco-educators is to build abundant edible sustainble eco-systems within which to re-create village style education systems. All schools should have or be a garden, and all gardens are intrinsically schools.

Whether you're building an educational faciltity from scratch, or retro-fitting an existing facility, there are infinite creative ways to bring green living systems to the playground, rooftop, parkways, parking lots, etc. that involve children in the design, build, plant, maintain, harvest cycle!

We can provide:

  • topic/activity based classes at your school site
  • additions to existing garden systems
  • seedlings, seeds, and livestock
  • design/build services
  • maintenance
  • compost worms
  • soil testing
  • soil/compost/mulch
  • salvaged/reclaimed building materials

 
 
Play Farm

Play Farm Exhibit

Our Play Farm exhibit is an interactive micro-scale home eco-system that shows kids how easy and fun it is to grow your own food in a sustainable, eco-systemtic way. Kids learn how to "close the loop" on their kitchen, by-pass the trash, and make soil, compost, and fertilizer with their food scraps in partnership with "productive pets" including fish, chickens, worms, etc.

The Play Farm fits in a standard 10x10 booth and can be booked at:

  • Schools
  • Parks
  • Events
  • Birthday Parties
  • and more!
