REAL School Gardens partners with high-poverty elementary schools to create learning gardens that become an integral part of their teaching culture and community. We support the design and installation of school gardens, train teachers to use them to improve children’s learning, and build community around them to nurture support for urban schools. When teachers take learning outdoors, children achieve greater success in school by becoming more engaged learners, more effective team members, and healthier people.
We currently support learning gardens at 74 elementary schools across North Texas, providing more than 41,000 children and 2,600 teachers with daily access to impactful, hands-on learning in the outdoors.
We will be supporting REAL School Gardens this year by donating $25 to the organization for each new customer along with participating in building various school gardens and attending events through the organization. If you would like more info or would like to be a part of this cause please contact us to learn more about community news and events.
