School Garden Project of Lane County

Grow. Eat. Learn.

Who We Are…

School Garden Project of Lane County formed in 2001 to help establish gardens and provide resources, professional consultation, and educational programs in local schools.

Our main goals and objectives are to increase children’s science knowledge, to assist children in making healthy eating choices, to teach children to be good stewards of the earth, and to strengthen their confidence through collaboration and cooperation with their fellow students. SGP’s lessons are designed to encourage learning while having fun!

Who We Serve…

School Garden Project provides program delivery of our in-school “Science in the Garden” lessons to over 1,200 children throughout 18 elementary and middle schools in Lane County.

What We Do…

School Garden Project’s programming empowers children that face food insecurity daily with the knowledge that they can grow their own food. Our programming provides a unique opportunity for our students. As one of our partner teachers stated, “Gardening is actually a luxury. If you don’t have a yard, you don’t have access”.

How We Do It…

School Garden Project works with one grade level at each school, bringing students into the garden for a one-hour lesson every other week for a total of 5 weeks of lessons in the Fall and 5 – 7 weeks of lessons in the Spring.
