Are you a school interested in a garden?
We will visit your school and help identify the most appropriate site for a garden. We can build on Asphalt OR unpaved!. The location must be south facing and have access to a water supply.
On average, we ask schools to contribute up to $5,500 for their edible school garden. This includes 6 large 4′ x 12′ garden beds, or up to 10 medium garden beds, 3 picnic tables, 6 climbing cages and an automated drip irrigation system. Our systems use little water and water only the plants!
We work with you to identify funding whether from within your school or within the district or in some cases, help you raise the funds for materials. We are to the point. We ask: how much can the school contribute? Is there a PTA? Who is a local companywho might like to help? We may have a company who already wants to build.
We will file all paperwork.
We will work with your CPM ( or other facility manager) and others to get your garden approved.
We carry all the appropriate insurance to satisfy your district.
We will gather volunteers to build a sustainable and safe edible garden. We will plant the garden. We get it done fast. We have a full menu of tools, equipment, and professionals to build a garden quickly and legally!
Please remember this.
A garden that works is so much more than a few boxes filled with soil. We are detailed. We make gardens work.
