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 information and resources, please visit the Little Green Thumbs national website. 

For the school year of 2018-2019, our Little Green Thumbs program has grown to 164 classrooms. We currently have a wait list of schools for September 2019-2020 and can be contacted for sponsorship.
