The Wonder of the Universe Starts with a Seed
We help install turnkey outdoor garden and indoor hydroponic systems at schools so that they can be used as living laboratories, which help inspire students to become the next generation of scientists, farmers, chefs, and entrepreneurs.
Thank you to The Engelstad Foundation
1 year. 250 schools. 200,000 students. 9,000 teachers. 800,000 family members…
All empowered to grow food using outdoor and indoor school gardens thanks to The Engelstad Foundation. The Engelstad Foundation generously donated $2.5 million to Green Our Planet to explode the school garden and hydroponics movement across the United States to improve STEM education, create healthy communities and connect people to the planet in a meaningful way.
What We Do
Whether it’s the seeds in gardens or the seeds of knowledge in young minds, Green Our Planet inspires growth. We open students’ minds to the wonders of the universe–from the soil to the stars–in everything we do.
Since installing our first school garden in 2013, we’ve expanded our programs nationwide–from Alaska to Florida and from metropolitan cities and the smallest of rural towns. Our garden programs allow teachers to engage students experientially, which is the most powerful form of education there is.
In an era of disconnection from our natural world, we use garden-based education to allow students to directly connect with the living world around us. Our programs establish STEM laboratories within and outside of schools so that teachers can integrate experiential education directly into their classrooms, so students learn first hand just how magical the world is that science has revealed to us.
