Garden Build as a Day of Service
Our expertise includes gardens for youth of all ages, from preschool to high school. We can lead a garden installation at formal education settings like schools and child care centers or at informal learning spaces like libraries, YMCAs, or club locations.
We can work with you to organize a garden installation or day of service. Services include:
- Determining your goals
- Recommending locations for the garden build or day of service
- Project managing an on-the-ground build event or garden day of service, including designs, materials, and coordination

Below are examples of a few of our previous garden installations:
PT Holdings Garden Build
York Center Elementary, Lombard, IL
KidsGardening and PT Holdings hosted a garden installation event at York Center Elementary in Lombard, Illinois, transforming an unused grassy space into a school garden and outdoor classroom. More than 75 volunteers showed up to construct eight raised beds, four benches, four picnic tables, two bean forts, two large sun sails, two trellised entries, a garden shed, a compost tumbler, and a pollinator garden expansion that included a rain barrel stand, edging, and a lattice for vertical gardening. The garden now offers more than 250 children the opportunity to learn about pollinators, fruits, vegetables, and sensory plants. Read more about this corporate day of service garden installation.
DreamWorks Animation Garden Installation
The Caring Center, Philadelphia, PA
KidsGardening joined folks from the Caring Center to celebrate the installation of a “Kitty Fairy-Tail Garden” in partnership with DreamWorks Animation and their show Gabby’s Dollhouse. The garden installation added eight new raised beds, a planting bench, three apple trees, and more. The gathering, which coincided with Earth Day, included planting activities, seed ball making, and most importantly, the unveiling of the new garden space! See more details from this fun planting day celebration.
ProFlowers Garden Expansion
Sequoia Elementary School - San Diego, CA
KidsGardening worked with ProFlowers and Sequoia Elementary School to design a garden addition that would integrate seamlessly with their pre-existing growing space. During the installation, a team of three KidsGardening staff led a group of 15 ProFlowers volunteers to assemble four prefabricated raised beds (4’ x 6’) and two composting systems. Volunteers also installed a 27’ x 3’ succulent garden and planted three small fruit trees. Read more about this corporate volunteer garden expansion event, tied to a product promotion.
