Are you the kind of teacher who wants to create a garden program at your school or who may have physical gardens, but needs help with establishing a comprehensive school garden program? Then Green Our Planet has the perfect solution for you!

Create a Garden Program Anywhere

Our GardenConnect Program helps schools across the United States create a comprehensive school garden program that will connect students to nature and serve as an outdoor laboratory for all kinds of in-depth studies.

Outdoor gardens are one of the best tools available for teaching students experiential STEM, nutrition and conservation and are a great resource to get students engaged with educational standards.

By assigning an experienced Green Our Planet coordinator to your school for monthly meetings, we are able to share nearly a decade of experience in how to build and maintain a garden, utilize garden-based curricula, create student-run farmers markets and how to form the next generation of scientists, chefs and entrepreneurs.

You will also connect and collaborate with like-minded teachers at schools across the nation to share best practices and get support during your monthly meetings and through our online community of garden teachers.

In short, we will help you maximize all of the many benefits that can come from establishing a great garden program at your school.

Our GardenConnect Services Include:

Assisting your school with build or purchase an outdoor garden system if one does not already exist.

Assigning a Green Our Planet Coordinator to your school. The Coordinator will help you launch the GardenConnect Program at your school and will meet with your garden team monthly for one school year via Zoom, Google Meet or another online service.

Providing your school with a PreK-5, garden-based STEM curriculum aligned to Next Generation Science Standards.

Providing you with online teacher trainings.

In general, teaching your school how to extract the maximum benefit from the GardenConnectProgram while helping to make the garden program sustainable.
