Bringing the Joy of Gardening to our Schools

The schools we work with have over 75% of the children on free and reduced lunches.  Many of those families, even with two working parents, frequently face food insecurity. 

Our Power of Plants program seeks to expose students to healthy foods and where they come from.  They gain a sense of teamwork, learn patience and focus, and gain self-confidence.  We want these children to not just create a habit of being in our gardens, but learn skills in these gardens that help them to be more self-sufficient in the future. 

 Scroll down below to see how we've spread our garden joy to Newark City Schools...
