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™ is a holistic program that provides participating schools with five major elements to support their garden-based learning programs.
The program was designed based on three pillars:

Best practices
in project-based learning

Best practices in
