Food ED works with grades K-12 on innovative and STEAM focused garden and edible education. We work with your school to determine what the needs and desires are while bringing in an expert team to lead sessions and build food and pollinator gardens.
Santa Fe Middle School
We are working with Santa Fe to bring them pollinator and food gardens to beautify the campus and provide STEAM learning opportunities for Cougar students.
We are assisting the amazing Plymouth staff in their garden build so each class will have access to growing food and running experiments in their new space. Plymouth is also one of our first schools to participate in our online curriculum. More pictures to come of their build!
Bradoaks & Monroe
Our new online curriculum just launched at Bradoaks & Monroe. We are excited about working alongside the Bobcats and Lions! Stay tuned for more online learning news.

Pollinator and efficient vegetable gardens reduce water usage in areas where there was grass by 60-70% while helping to sequester carbon. They promote healthy activity and STEAM learning while also aiding pollinator and ecosystem restoration. The benefits are many; we are happy to share our full educational and environmental impact report or customize one for your school or community.
