About

P1010153

The Little Green Thumbs (LGT) program aims to help young people value the health of themselves, the environment and their community through active participation in a classroom garden. The grow kits, soil and seeds form an indoor garden that complement learning concepts such as where food comes from, how to grow healthy plants, sustainable food systems, community interdependence and nutrition in fun, interesting and relevant ways.

We truly believe that the Little Green Thumbs program is a vehicle that educators can use to help students learn cross curricular concepts in science, social studies, health, language arts, and math. It is also our hope that, through the gardening process, students will develop lifelong values of stewardship, and an awareness of how humans may positively interact with their surroundings.

For the school year of 2016-2017, our Little Green Thumbs program has grown to 128 classrooms. We currently have a wait list of schools for September 2017-2018 and can be contacted for sponsorship.

Current Little Green Thumbs have been holding Harvest Celebrations to celebrate their gardens this school year: Press Release
