Steps in Starting a School Garden is a great resource for those considering a school garden or for schools wanting to start a sustainable garden program.





The Georgia School Garden Calendar goes through each month of the year giving gardeners ideas on what to plant, how to tie the garden to the curriculum, and administrative support actions.   This publication is specific to Georgia and our ecosystem.

Additional Resources

Although organizations providing these resources are based in different parts of the country, the information is widely adaptable to most regions of the U.S.
