Captain Planet Foundation’s (CPF) Project Learning Garden Program is replete with opportunities to support inquiry-based, immersive learning experiences in STEAM education for students of all levels and ages. In conjunction with applied principles of project-based learning, gardens provide teachers and students with outdoor laboratories full of natural phenomena to be observed, explored, questioned, and investigated. Gardens provide meaningful anchors where standard learning objectives merge with real-world experiences, making many of the concepts we teach relevant and relatable to students’ lives.

This partnership brings to life Delta’s mission to support the communities where we live, work and serve while having a positive impact on the environment and supporting education. Delta employees will volunteer to help install and harvest the gardens at all schools selected under this program, and your school may be selected for a special media day and tasting event!
