Welcome to the University of Georgia's School Garden website.  We hope this website provides you with all the information you need to create a sustainable school garden.  We gratefully acknowledge the support of Kaiser Permanente for this site. 

  • It takes a team of dedicated teachers, administrators, students, and parents to create a sustainable school garden.
  • Use your imagination, and your students' imaginations, when designing your garden space.
  • Every school subject can be taught through the garden.
  • Getting a bit dirty never hurt anyone!

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.  - Gertrude Jekyll

Contact your local UGA Cooperative Extension Agent for more information on starting and maintaining a sustainable school garden.
