Green Our Planet's Expansion Across Southern Nevada
Green Our Planet launched in the spring of 2013 and has raised over $4,000,000 for its school garden program since then. During the last five years, Green Our Planet has helped fund and build 137 Outdoor Garden Classrooms that help educate more than 80,000 students in Las Vegas, Nevada. The school garden maps below show the growth of the program.
Green Our Planet’s Outdoor Garden Classroom Program is now the largest, boots-on-the-ground school garden program in the United States. It's also one of the most comprehensive, adapting proven methods and techniques from other successful garden programs across the country.
In 2017, Green Our Planet introduced its hydroponics program into the Clark County School District, in partnership with the nonprofit, Los Vaqueros. The program is the first school hydroponics program to be established in Nevada. In 2017 Green Our Planet also began expanding its Outdoor Garden Classroom Program across Southern Nevada and into Nye County.
