experiential garden-based teaching with science & core standards by
2eden school gardens is a consultant and provider of educational, experiential and kinesthetic, horticultural-based learning for young minds. With unique and original hands-on programs that are science-based, we introduce, explain and reinforce common core educational standards and deliver highly structured, garden-based learning and organic growing for students from Preschool to 8th Grade. We also promote health & wellness and local food production through school gardens and edible schoolyards and, environmental stewardship of the Earth through responsible use and protection of the environment and natural resources through conservation and sustainable practices.
A garden can be a phenominal teaching tool. However, without the knowledge and skills of an experienced gardener or gardening professional, it can also be a very daunting prospect! Our work with school districts, specialists, teachers, PTA's and volunteers enable school gardens to thrive and achieve their fullest potential.
There has never been a more important time for re-connecting our young people to their food, to the earth and to their own ability to grow and provide for the future. Careers in sustainability and 'Green Jobs' are experiencing, and forecast for, continued exponential growth. From science to engineering to industrial management and helping companies run more efficiently, all of these careers focus on providing products and services without undermining environmental integrity or draining future resources. The diversity of opportunities is astounding and we firmly believe that we are playing a very active role in providing a solid foundation to help set young global citizens on paths to responsible lives and future careers.
