Project Learning Garden™ provides schools
with outdoor learning laboratories

Gardens in the schoolyard are effective outdoor learning spaces for students to engage in inquiry-driven, project-based learning across all disciplines.

Project Learning Garden™ was designed based on: 1) Best practices in project-based learning; 2) Best practices in schoolyard garden programs;  and 3) Research into what practices shape eating behaviors in children as they grow. The holistic program that emerged provides participating schools with five major elements to support their garden-based learning programs.
