REA School Gardens creates learning gardens that grow successful students.

For a teacher, a garden is more than a beautiful place or a veggie patch.  It is a powerful learning tool, as critical to a student's academic success as a computer or a microscope.  To help students succeed, REAL School Gardens creates learning gardens in low-income elementary schools and trains teachers how to use them to improve student engagement and academic achievement.  For most schools, the first step is to create the learning garden.  Our program unites teachers, parents, funders and the students themselves to design a learning garden tailored to each school's unique needs.   Then, in one satisfying day of service, hundreds of volunteers come together to create a beautiful place for children to learn and grow.  We then work with our partner schools for three years or more, training teachers to use the garden to help students achieve academically.
