Management of Public Spaces

Ready to make the most of your community's public space?  It can serve as an outdoor classroom, a source of fresh produce for your food bank, a community center, or any combination of resources that will best serve your neighborhood. We can help you map it out, put together a volunteer plan, and develop a maintenance process and manual to keep it going. 

Programs & Curricula

We develop targeted and comprehensive curricula and conduct programs for garden clubs, camps, schools, religious organizations--any groups ready to incorporate the art, science and hands-on pleasures of gardens and horticulture into their learning experience. And now, socially-distanced home-based curricula for learning pods. In addition, we provide

  • Tutoring in plant biology and horticulture
  • Training in landscape design, maintenance and management; pruning; and vegetable/herb garden development
