School Gardens

School garden

The Classroom Gardener is an on-site school garden program developed specifically to support teachers.

We work with school communities who wish to explore how the big ideas, core and curricular competencies are meaningfully woven into a cross-curricular garden-based pedagogy. We support school communities as they build up their garden areas to be used as outdoor classrooms with an emphasis on pedagogies of place and play. Our full program is designed to support a gradual release of responsibility so your students and staff feel competent and capable teaching across the curriculum in your school garden.

We provide on-site school garden programming for students of all ages in public, independent, and home learning spaces within Vancouver’s lower mainland. Schools, preschools, childcare centres, and homeschoolers outside of this area can still contact us for professional development bookings, to purchase educator resource kits, or to request virtual coaching.
