2020-2021 School Year

Have you dreamed about starting a garden at your school but aren’t sure where to start?

This is the New Brunswick School Gardens Initiative – a project designed to revolutionize the way we use plants as educational resources. Sign up here!

The great outdoors offers new and exciting ways to keep students engaged with their studies while developing the essential skills of working with nature, sustainable living and teamwork. With a growing demand for social distance and wide-open spaces, there has never been a better time to utilize the areas outside of our classrooms and living rooms to stay safe and promote education.

Those participating in the initiative will be provided with mentorship, garden inspiration, access to community garden networks, assistance accessing funding, and knowledge building. These supports, in conjunction with a series of interactive online events throughout the school year will enable participants to get the most out of their efforts, placing fewer demands on teachers and making this an overall fun and exciting experience!

Grow a garden, Challenge yourself, Change the world!
