Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

As part of Life Lab's 30th Anniversary we hosted a summit of school garden leaders to document successful regional school garden support models. This summit took place on September 10-11, 2009.  
 
UPDATE: We have launched the National School Garden Support Organization Forum – connect with others sustaining regional school garden programs.
 
A regional model, defined for the summit’s purpose, is a program, policy or staff person(s) that supports multiple school gardens in a defined region (eg. district, city or county).
Regional Support Models can empower garden champions, build community, and lay the foundation for long-term sustainability.
 
Our summit goal was to create a space for school gardening support professionals to share the common roots that grow success and to publish our findings.

Summaries of the summit discussion topics are presented on the following pages

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
