An edible outdoor learning space, tackling childhood hunger & obesity? We're connecting children to food through hands-on, fun approach to nutrition education by growing food and cooking with local chefs!
Oooohh...look at that - apples on a tree! Did you see that butterfly?
I didn't know that carrots are grown from the ground and it's so sweet!
Eeewww...look at that worm. Can we add more ways to save water?
When the idea for the Community Gardens at a local elementary school sprouted 9 years ago, the main goal for our parent-led organization was to provide an outdoor learning space that was engaging and a direct extension of the classroom.
It sprouted into a movement that will seed 40 elementary campuses with an innovative project based learning program that combines an outdoor learning space, an experiential nutrition initiative (Come and Eat it!), and our signature event: Garden To Table.
As a parent-led 501C3 non-profit organization, Independence Gardens’ has committed to providing the seed of commitment for innovation, engaging learning activities, community and school collaboration through edible school gardening and sustainability practices.
Our mission is simple: To connect children to food through actionable, impactful nutrition education programs that is engaging, meaningful, transformative, and at the same time, provide communities and children access to fresh food. We're tackling childhood hunger and obesity with a single seed.
Every great idea, possibility, accomplishment, product, or service, started out the same…as a seed that is planted and nourished.
