We support teachers by providing outdoor activities for students in their classes, by providing a variety of professional development opportunities, and by providing a garden coordinator to help manage school gardens.

Garden Educator Meetings

EdenAcres and Dairy Creek Community Food Web have teamed up to host our monthly Garden Educator Meetups. Each meeting provides professional development opportunities, guest speakers, and/or resource support for our community of teachers and volunteers dedicated to growing garden-based learning in our schools.

School Garden Funding

In partnership with the dairy Creek Food Web, we’ve written grants to provide support for school gardens. With these grants, we’ve allocated significant funding towards designing, installing, and maintaining school gardens. If you need help with a garden at your school, tell us what you need and we will help!

School Garden Coordinator

Our School Garden Coordinator is focused on facilitating classroom access to school gardens. By delivering Common Core/NGSS/STEAM aligned garden-based curriculum, garden maintenance support, curriculum resources for educators, and after school club opportunities, our Garden Coordinator works to develop a rich relationship between each school and their garden.

Traveling Programs

We will come to your school and deliver a Primitive Skills workshop to your students. Workshops are about 1 hour long and we can work with you to focus the workshop on the academic area that best fits your curriculum. Select from: Fire Making, Knife and Hatchet Basics, Fiber Arts, and Native Plants for Food and Healing.

Custom Programs

If primitive skills don’t fit your needs, we can work with you to develop custom-designed activities that match your curriculum. We’ve worked with Roots & Shoots, the Forest Grove Community School, Fernhill Elementary, and Adelante Chicas to develop workshops on Traditional Foods, Science and Discovery, Civic Engagement, and more. Contact us to see how we can help with engaging programs that make learning fun!

Creative Alternative Learning Center (CALC)

We are working with the Creative Alternative Learning Center (CALC) to offer a Leadership Through Design course where students practice the process of envisioning change, developing effective plans for achieving that change, and then efficiently putting those plans into action through hands-on practice. Sustainability concepts are embedded throughout the curriculum, as are a consideration of community relationships, collaborative methodologies, leadership qualities, and civic-minded social practices.
