Discover Boundless Wonder

Do you know how many students test poorly in science, are stuck inside their classrooms all day, have no idea where their food comes from, and are disconnected from both nature and school?

We help solve some of these problems by installing turnkey outdoor school gardens to use as living laboratories, which help inspire students to become the next generation of scientists, farmers, chefs, and entrepreneurs.

Growing a school garden can be fun and enriching for both students and teachers. Gardens create an explosion of ideas and life in the classroom, the schools, and in the local community.

Our programs are now the largest of their kind in the country, while 97% of the teachers who use our programs recommend them to other schools.
