We support the enhancement of indoor spaces in schools, community spaces and residences primarily using iHarvestTM by IGWorksTM.
We provide training workshops to ensure program leaders understand all aspects of garden operations. We offer on-site training workshops with your garden and off-site visits to our farm in Boston.
We provide continued support on garden operations, curriculum iteration and virtual office hours.
Our intent is to accommodate a wide variety of learning styles by providing stimulating activities and projects designed for a learning environment.
Exposure to sustainable farming practices expands the role of individuals within our food system beyond consumption, to the production of fresh, healthy and tasty greens. We use this garden-based learning platform to encourage environmental stewardship as we build a society that is more resilient and future that is sustainable. Beyond an introduction to the food growing process, projects and activities are guided by the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations
