Parkway Partners’ Schoolyard Gardens Program incorporates the garden into teachers’ curricula. The gardens are used to teach Math, Science, Art and Language Arts.

- Andrew Wilson Charter

Interested in planting trees at your school, or starting a schoolyard garden?
All gardens are a lot of work and need the commitment of a few dedicated teachers, parents and/or community members to thrive. Yet their impact on the school and its students is endless!
Talk with your principal first and then contact Susannah Burley at (504) 620-2224, ext 4, or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss starting a garden at your school.
