Openlands believes that school and community gardens are a great way to connect people to nature. Our program includes a series of workshops that are offered throughout the calendar year with class and field components. Lessons are taught by local experts focused on maintaining school gardens in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Held throughout the year at Building School Gardens schools, these workshops give teachers and garden team members tools that help them to maintain the garden, and to use the schoolyard as a part of class lessons, and it provides garden teams with a networking opportunity.
Peoples Gas is the Principal Sponsor of Building School Gardens.
