Cultivating a sustainable future through
garden-based education

Our mission

The Learning Gardens Lab supports academic achievement, leadership development, and local sustainable food systems by providing multicultural, interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and experiential garden-based education for public school students and their families, university students, and community members.

All programs at LGL are coordinated by a staff team of graduate students in the Leadership for Sustainability Education program
