Inspiring children to learn and value our natural world through garden-based education.
Living Classroom collaborates with schools and communities to provide engaging, hands-on lessons that stimulate curiosity and to create beautiful and educational school gardens. We offer a full range of start-up and on-going support services, including K-8 lesson plans and material kits, garden design and development, docent and staff training, fundraising guidance, and a technology platform for scheduling and communications.
Our program is loved and appreciated by local teachers as our lessons correlate with current science, math, and social studies standards. Living Classroom has operated in the Los Altos School District for 6 years and the Mountain View Whisman School District for 2 years. In this time, we have taught over 2,000 lessons to over 6,0000 students. We have recruited dozens of volunteer docents to continue our commitment to connecting students with nature--join us!
