We believe that all kids should have a garden in which to play, learn and grow, engaging their natural curiosity and wonder.

KidsGardening has been a leader in the school gardening movement since 1982. We envision happier, healthier kids learning in the garden and connecting to nature. This improves nutritional attitudes and educational outcomes, enhances social and emotional learning, and gives rise to environmental stewardship in youth across the country.

We inspire, support, and connect educators and families by providing garden grants and curriculum, and by cultivating a youth garden community. We hope you will join us.

Plant the seed

Plant a seed that blooms for a lifetime.

A child who gardens plants a seed of impact within their family, their community, and the world around them. Your gift to KidsGardening will provide educators and families with the tools they need to get more kids in the garden.


Garden with the kids in your life.

No matter the season, we have garden activity ideas that kids of all ages will love.

We hear from educators every day about how gardening changes kids' lives.

“I always say that the most important thing we are growing in the garden is our children.”
- Kimberly, youth center leader, Chicago

“Respect for nature has translated to respect for oneself. Caring for garden plots in cooperative teams of two has led to partners caring for each other’s welfare — as well as the vegetable plants!”
- Joe, elementary school teacher, Texas

“Students on the fringe academically and socially became leaders of their peers in the garden.”
- Claire, elementary school teacher, California
