Living Classroom

The Living Classroom collaborates with schools and communities to develop site- or district-specific programs that provide engaging, hands-on lessons that stimulate curiosity and create beautiful and educational school gardens. We offer a full range of start-up and on-going support services, including K-8 lesson plans and kits, garden design and development, docent and staff training, fundraising guidance, and a technology platform for scheduling and communications.

Visit a Living Classroom participating school and you may witness students constructing a worm farm, harvesting and threshing winter wheat, exploring the surface area of leaves, or planting a Native American "Three Sisters" garden. The Living Classroom utilizes school gardens and outdoor areas as it provides children with hands-on learning experiences. These lessons complement the existing curriculum and provide the opportunity for students to experience concepts taught in the classroom through exploration of the natural world.
