What we do
Little Green Thumbs is an indoor gardening program that brings your classroom to life.
Each year we get closer to our vision of a garden in every school and a school in every garden! For 12 years, Little Green Thumbs has been improving food literacy, cultivating environmental stewardship and transforming classroom environments for over 100,000 students.
Roots across the country
Little Green Thumbs is growing in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Newfoundland and Labrador. The LGT program is delivered regionally by our local non-profit and educational ‘host’ organizations. We are always looking to grow our Little Green Thumbs family! Find out who’s in our family and where we are growing.

As a Little Green Thumbs teacher, you’ll have access to program materials, lesson plans, how-to videos and ongoing support from your local coordinator.
