Our mission is to facilitate environmental stewardship, wellness and equity for Becker Elementary students and their community in an experiential outdoor learning space. The Becker Green Classroom engages children in growing, harvesting, and tasting flavorful food in beautiful gardens. Through hands-on activities guided by community volunteers, students apply and gain knowledge through integrated curriculum concepts, while becoming aware of nature’s cycles and sustainable practices. Our vision is to create communities of aware and engaged individuals living sustainably in a just world.
The Becker Green Classroom is a 10,000 square foot organic garden that serves as an interactive outdoor classroom in Austin, Texas. Students’ hands-on experience in the garden fosters a deeper understanding of science, ecology and healthy food and promotes students’ sense of well-being through outdoor learning.
The Becker Green Classroom is a self-funded, independent 501c3 non-profit organization that operates out of an AISD owned facility on the Becker Elementary Campus in Austin, TX.
In partnership with City of Austin Watershed Protection Department’s EARTH CAMP and Becker Elementary, we offer each Becker class its own designated garden bed and the opportunity to participate throughout the school year in a weekly, hour-long learning session led by our volunteers.
