HOW

Students engage in weekly, hands-on garden-based learning within local schools and community garden settings.

We provide 35 developmentally-appropriate and seasonally-relevant lessons that address an average of 5 curricular standards per lesson.

THE RESULTS

A 2018 study (Balch, et al.) comparing behavior and experience outcomes between students who participated in Plant the Seed’s curriculum to those who did not, showed a statistically significant difference in 4 major areas.

Major Areas:

  • Science Concepts
  • Conservation-Oriented Viewpoint
  • Closing the Experience Gap
  • Cooperative Learning
