We are thrilled to work with so many schools both during their school day and as an after school program. If you would like to hear more about how to bring the Green Schoolhouse to a school in your neighborhood please email email@example.com
This season we are working in school gardens to create connection and community for students, encouraging curiosity, discovery, a healthy lifestyle, and the adventure of being outside. Below you will find our autumn partners. We’ll be posting our winter term offerings (HOMESTEADING!) soon.
Richmond Elementary: A unique Japanese immersion school with a gorgeous garden complete with columnar apple trees, blueberry bushes, and plenty of room for creativity. We are so lucky to work with the Richmond team to encourage children to be outside on more than just the sunny days, to grow food throughout the year, and to bring Japanese language into the garden setting.
Riverdale Grade School: A pre-K through 8th grade school where we work both during the school day and after school. During the school day we work closely with teachers to create programming that facilitates in school curriculum in the outdoor environment. Students are able to bring their ideas and sense of individuality to create a space that is ideal all while meeting learning standards.
Llewellyn Elementary: A garden right at the heart of the school encourages the entire community to enjoy the shade and shelter of giant tree as well as provides a space where students can get their hands in the soil to plant and explore everything below surface level.
Hayhurst Elementary: The Unity Garden brings a sense of magic and warmth to the central courtyard of the school. Students sow, weed, and harvest throughout the year bringing an area of wonder to life.
Abernethy Elementary: The Garden of Wonders inspires students to explore the tiniest bug and the grandest sunflower. Here our after school program works closely with the in school garden educator to link students and family to the garden and build our community.
Beverly Cleary Elementary: Earth, Art, Agriculture leads the in school garden education at this school and we work with them to help maintain the garden and further the conversation around sustainability education in our after school program.
Portland Youth Builders: Youth Builders is a national organization, at the Portland site we work side by side with young adults who are in the process of completing their GED to facilitate a garden experience as well as a health and nutrition class.
