What is the School Garden Support Organization Network? 

We are a network comprised of organizations and individuals that support multiple school garden programs at a regional, school district, or state level.

What does the School Garden Support Organization Network do?

We host an online forum for school garden support professionals to share resources and ideas.

We carry the conversation of regional school garden support to existing national gatherings by proposing workshop sessions and events for school garden support professionals.

What type of information is being shared?

Being an online forum our content is purely driven by users. We have created the following topic categories (tags) to help direct conversation and provide structure to the forum.

Funding and Budgeting

Research and Assessment

Training and Staffing Garden Educators

Garden to Cafeteria

Policies to Support School Gardens

Program Management - Running Regional or Statewide Programs

Creating and Managing Garden Sites

Announcements - Miscellaneous

Using Google Groups allows for a free and flexible online forum that archives discussions, attachments, and weblinks. You will need a Google Account to post or reply to the forum.

We are ran by inkind contributions of our Advisory Committee with leadership from Life Lab, The Kitchen Community, Whole Kids Foundation and The Edible SchoolYard Project
