Resources for School Gardens

School gardens provide the context for lessons across subjects and offer a wonderful opportunity to engage students in hands-on, project-based learning. Students who engage in school gardening are likely to experience academic, physical, emotional, social, and even behavioral benefits. BirdSleuth has partnered with Alaska Fertilizer to bring a series of online resources and tips on how schools can create and utilize gardens. Each month we will release a new post to encourage educators around the country.

We are seeking 20 dedicated teachers who strive to bring STEM and healthy living from the garden to the classroom. These teachers will receive $500-$2,000 grant, gardening supplies, and BirdSleuth’s Habitat Connections kit thanks to our sponsor Alaska Fertilizer. Funds may be used to support the building or revitalization of school gardens. In addition to food gardens, preference will be given to bird, pollinator, native habitat, rain, and other natural projects. Learn more about this wonderful garden grant opportunity!
