School Garden Projects
Organics Out Back is committed to giving back to the community, and helping educate future generations on organic gardening.
One way we do this is by donating multiple school gardens each year. By working in partnership with The Ecology Center we are also able to educate future generations on the importance of organic gardening for our environment and the benefits of eating a healthy organic diet. The Ecology Center offers gardening education for the children, and helps instruct the school on proper maintenance and care of the gardens. If you would like to see a garden in your child’s school, or a local school, Organics Out Back will donate their expertise and time. You and/or the school can partner with Organics Out Back and The Ecology Center and provide the materials.
Many of the parents of the schools we have worked with volunteer to participate in the installation and ongoing care of the gardens. Parents have shared with us that introducing their children to gardens has actually encouraged them eat foods that they previously avoided. The students love eating what they have grown.
