Schoolyard Gardens


Parkway Partners’ Sow & Grow Schoolyard Gardens Program incorporates the garden into teachers’ curricula and uses it as an outdoor classroom.  The gardens are used to teach all subjects, including Math, Science, Art and Language Arts.  Students get to experience outdoor learning activities while also reaping the benefits of learning about long term planning, the importance of working as a team and environmental stewardship.

Parkway Partners supported the development of gardens at the following schools:

  • Audubon Charter School
  • Andrew Wilson Charter School
  • Benjamin Franklin High
  • International School of Louisiana
  • KIPP Central City Academy
  • KIPP McDonogh 15 School for Creative Arts
  • Langston Hughes Charter
  • Lusher Charter High School
  • NOCCA Institute
  • Sophie B. Wright Learning Academy
