Seedling offers an interdisciplinary, experiential curriculum for youth in schools and afterschool programs that teaches agriculture, food systems, business, and more.
Our curriculum promotes awareness of food insecurity, sustainable habits, career development, and community service. We supplement our program with our hydroponics units, which provide students the opportunity to grow their own fresh, nutritious produce.
By bridging the gap between education and application, Seedling teaches youth to lead healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
"It's different because we're learning about subjects that we do not learn on a basis. Seedling is more active than other classes and teaches more about how we can protect our environment."
