Growing the future by teaching children in the gardens.
Granny's Garden School develops, promotes and supports hands-on learning experiences through school-based, garden and nature focused programs to help children experience nature, to feel the satisfaction of growing their own food and to appreciate the simple pleasure of picking a flower. We have three major programs:
The School Garden Program in Loveland, OH: We provide a curriculum-related (state standards aligned) education program using more than 100 vegetable gardens, lots of flower gardens and a nature trail to Loveland's 1,400 first - fourth grade students.
Schoolyard Nature Network: We assist others with developing their own school garden programs by establishing a foundation of financial, in-kind and training resources to sustain school garden programs.
Family Garden Project: We encourage and support families with starting gardens in their own backyards.
