We connect students, faculty, staff, and parents through hands-on learning experiences—in and outside the classroom. Our garden and project locations include:
- CITY OF RICHMOND: Henderson Middle, Elkhardt Middle, Binford Middle, Franklin Military Academy, Maymont Elementary, Summer Hill Elementary
- HENRICO COUNTY: Moody Middle, Adams Elementary, Fairfield Middle, Lucille Brown Middle, Greenwood Elementary
- CHESTERFIELD COUNTY: Beulah Elementary, Evergreen Elementary, E. Scott Elementary, Bellwood Elementary
We ensure that a maintenance plan is in place–and engage the children in the process through regular programming! Kindergarteners love organic gardens, because that means they get to pick the bugs off the plants themselves rather than rely on pesticides. Middle schoolers get a thrill out of transplanting—especially when they can turn the fruits of their labors into a fundraiser for field trips. Parents and teachers enjoy watching their students grow as quickly as the seeds they plant.
