How We Impact the Community

We organize the School Garden Learning Network to empower teachers, schools, and communities to grow school gardens/outdoor classrooms. We impact the Napa Valley community by providing funding, equipment, tools, professional development, garden programs (like Dirt Girls, an equitable after-school garden-science program since 2016 that has empowered 64 participants to explore their passion, purpose, and voice) and collegial support to all interested schools and garden educators.

We believe that children thrive and grow into responsible environmental stewards and healthy members of society when they are regularly exposed to outdoor learning spaces where they can engage in meaningful science learning, and practice mindful habits. Our grassroots approach supports garden educators in eliminating barriers to outdoor-and nature-based education on school campuses. This year we are starting an annual "Erin Soper Memorial Grant" to support a teacher with growing their garden-based teaching practice.
