Mission Statement

Our mission is to foster lifelong connections to the wonders of the natural world. We believe in the benefits of immersing kids in the outdoors from a young age and the lasting impact of positive impressions with nature. To support this, our non-profit creates and manages garden and nature based programs on school grounds for elementary students. Our garden and nature trail are used to enhance classroom study while allowing children an opportunity to experience nature, the satisfaction of growing their own food and contributing harvest to the local food pantry.

  • Design and year-round maintenance of educational food garden and nature trail on school grounds.
  • A customized, age appropriate curriculum aligned with both school and state requirements
  • A schedule of outdoor learning classes provided for classroom teacher signup
  • Nature educators prepared to teach interactive lessons
  • A non-profit board overseeing results and building a sustainable operation with strong school and teacher partnership
