Farm and Garden School Programs

Farm and Garden School Programs

Berkshire Botanical Garden brings hands-on programming to schools and community sites, both during and after school. We offer year-round, site-based cirricula and instruction for elementary through middle school students. Working in tandem with our educators, students engage in challenging and meaningful work both in the classrooms and in their school gardens, with each program uniquely catered to the needs of the school community. Students participating in these programs learn plant and ecosystem science through hands-on activities focused on the food system and its effect on our environment, our health, and our communities. Experiential and service learning models are emphasized as students design and implement projects using both horticultural and entrepreneurial skills.Through innovative lessons, students explore a range of topics including Next Generation Science Standards, food systems, leadership and social-emotional learning, with programs running from five weeks to 12 months. For more information about how to bring BBG's programming to your school or site please contact BBG Education coordinator, Bridgette Stone.
