Learning Gardens

We believe school gardens are an important teaching tool that have the ability to enhance students and educators learning experiences. These outdoor spaces should be thought of as an extension of the regular classroom, teaching anything from math to history to science.

​Many students and teachers also gain their first gardening experience through these outdoor spaces. Students develop insight into the natural ​world, and learn to become responsible stewards ​of the environment. 

 

School based gardens are also an important way to engage the surrounding community through after school and summer events. Students, staff, and community members gain first hand knowledge on where their food comes from, as well as the effort that goes into producing a crop from seed to harvest.​

 

Additionally, many gardens are a source of fresh produce to individuals and families that have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Find your nearest School Garden here!

There are currently 30 school gardens in

Buffalo and Niagara Falls!
