Tools for getting started on school gardens

The Master Gardener Program has been largely instrumental in implementing school garden programs in the area. You can access its start-up kits online, where there are several informative sites on how gardens can be worked into curricula.

To join its e-mail list, go to the Common Ground Garden Program or e-mail Yvonne Savio at ydsavio@ucdavis.edu.

For garden school curricula, go to the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom.

Information on the Garden School Foundation can be found on its website.
