Our New Way Garden Inc. creates educational opportunities by partnering with various schools and community groups

We offer a series of workshops for school that will provide students with hands on experience in the garden. By working in the garden, students will learn the importance of the environment and how it relates to our health and well-being as individuals and a society. There are numerous ways to link the garden to the curriculum depending on the age of the students and the focus of the class.  The program will be designed through communications with faculty via email or meetings to determine grade appropriate garden workshop goals depending upon budget and time. 

A valuable experience can range from two visits per grade per year to one visit per grade per week throughout the entire year
