• PROJECT LEARNING GARDEN Plg_logo_header_website

    This program provides schools with strategies for building effective and long-lasting garden-based learning programs. Teachers at pilot schools are provided with hands-on training, curriculum aligned to national standards, lesson kits filled with supplies, a schoolyard garden, fully-equipped garden cooking cart, and summer garden management intern.

    Gardens can provide a context for multidisciplinary learning, ranging from nutrition and science to social, studies, math and language arts. Students benefit by expanding their palates, taste-testing healthy foods, and learning about food origins; engaging in authentic science field investigations; manipulating the environment to understand math in real-life applications; recreating historical activities; and writing across all these disciplines.

  • FIND OUT IF YOU’RE ELIGIBLE FOR A LEARNING GARDEN

    CPF currently has funding commitments to install gardens in Atlanta Public Schools, Fulton County Public Schools, Gwinnett County Public Schools, Dekalb County Public Schools and Cobb County Public Schools (all in Georgia) and Ventura County Public Schools in California. If your school is located in one of these counties and you are interested in having a Learning Garden installed at your school, please fill out the form below. We will follow up with an e-mail and provide you with a full application.

    If your school is located outside of these funded areas, please provide your contact information so we can speak to funders about where gardens are in demand. You will be first on the list if we are able to secure the support!
