Get Involved, Become a Sponsor!
Sponsor a Garden
We are introducing a new way to support garden education in our schools! It is only with the help of our sponsors that we are able to keep our school gardens up and running, and now there is an easy, fun way to help. There are four different levels of donation, each one offering unique benefits to you, your family, or your business. The levels range from Harvester – $2,500 Cultivator – $1,000 Pollinator – $250 Sprout – $50

Tomatoes and Tessellations
This past week, summer school at State Road Elementary zeroed in on the subject of geometry. Josh Wolcott’s lesson, ‘Geometry In The Garden, Proportions In The Kitchen’ taught students from 3rd grade through 7th grade the importance of math in everyday life. On Wednesday, the students designed their own tessellations and hunted for plants that had their own, natural tessellations in the hoop house. They even had time to bake a batch of apple honey cookies, utilizing their knowledge of fractions and proportions! Summer classes like these allow kids to grasp a broad concept from all different levels of knowledge and experience.
