Our Gardens

Our School Gardens

Our school gardens are used as an outdoor classroom where our garden educators provide standards-based curriculum to students Kindergarten through fifth grade. Garden lessons include planting, counting, measuring, observing, recording, creating, comparing, and (everyone's favorite) cooking!​
 

Each school has a student-grown, student-led farm stand on site once a semester. Students learn entrepreneurial skills through the harvesting, packaging, marketing, and selling of their extra produce.

Our Community Gardens

21st Century Community Garden

515 South 12th Street in downtown Gadsden

Fresh produce available year-round for free to neighbors of the garden.

Community Garden Days will take place one Saturday a month in the garden. We will plant seeds, weed, mulch, harvest, and EAT! We will take care of the needs of the garden and the garden will feed us! A different recipe will be highlighted each month featuring produce from the garden.

*Suspended until we can safely meet together as a group.

Local food distribution programs have been supplemented with extra produce from the garden periodically since March.
