Managing a School Garden? Let’s make it easy! Managing a school garden may seem like a lot of work, but we are here to make it easier. Use our communication tools below to coordinate with key groups in your school – your Garden Team, teachers & staff, and family & community volunteers. We have compiled an array of resources to help you get started in school garden management:

Garden Teams coordinate engagement and garden care at each school: Organize and coordinate your efforts as a garden team.

Engage teachers and other school staff: Recruit teachers, communicate the garden vision and provide opportunities for them to engage with the garden.

Share these two documents with teachers and volunteers before they participate in a garden event:

Engage family and community volunteers: Build a community of support around your garden to enhance your school’s commitment to real food and engage families in garden care and eating produce.
