Life Lab

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

Overview

Why do some school gardens take root and become well-established, while others struggle? In this workshop, we will discuss key elements of building a strong school garden culture. Together, we’ll explore different, sustainable school garden program models; planning tools to align year-round garden activities with academic and garden care goals; methods for assessing garden programs; and strategies for increasing funding.

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.
