Kids gardening

Collective Action for Social Justice and a More Sustainable Community

The School Garden Workshop connects students in public schools 

with Tucson’s agricultural legacy by planting, maintaining, and engaging in 

                 school gardens. Using gardens as dynamic educational tools, we help cultivate community, 

connect students with their local food system and use gardens as STEM learning labs.


The University of Arizona’s School Garden Workshop (SGW) connects Tucson educators and community organizations with university students eager to participate in the school garden movement occurring throughout the country. University student interns are matched with underserved school garden placement sites where they support the installation, development and maintenance of a garden program.
