I'd like to support the program
What we do
Little Green Thumbs is an indoor gardening program that brings your classroom to life.
We equip teachers with the tools, skills and training to grow classroom gardens. A Little Green Thumbs garden supports inquiry-based, hands-on and cross-curricular learning. Youth unlock the magic of food and agriculture education and explore the connections between their health, environment and food system.
Each year we get closer to our vision of a garden in every school and a school in every garden! For 10 years, Little Green Thumbs has been improving food literacy, cultivating environmental stewardship and transforming classroom environments for over 80,000 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.
Our promise, your adventure
We’re here to help. A classroom garden should integrate into classroom life and learning, acting as an extension to your learning environment. 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. Check out some sample Little Green Thumbs activities and resources below!
