We serve 2,072 people at four sites in Tulsa with during school, after school and summer programs. We also facilitate two on-site community gardens specifically for families.
We teach an all-encompassing curriculum that connects the garden with other disciplines and allows students to connect the garden to both school learning and real life experiences, and we encourage the use of the garden as a central gathering and meeting place for the community.
