Green Our Planet launched its Outdoor Garden Classroom STEM Program in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 2013. The Outdoor Garden STEM Program helps public and private schools raise funding for outdoor school gardens and implements comprehensive programming so that students can learn a variety of subjects including STEM, nutrition, and conservation.
Green Our Planet’s “turn-key” Outdoor Garden STEM Program is now the largest and one of the most comprehensive school garden programs offered in the United States. It is also the only school garden program in the United States accredited by STEMWORKS, a national organization that rigorously evaluates STEM programs using strict criteria and then recommends them nationally.
97% of the teachers who use the Green Our Planet school garden programs recommend them to other schools.
