So, you’re ready to grow? Find out how the process works below!
A teacher applies. Their application is sent to their regional Little Green Thumbs Host Organization.
If accepted, all Little Green Thumbs teachers attend a training session with their Host Organization, and receive an indoor growing kit and learning resources. (Demand is high, and there are only a select number of Little Green Thumbs gardens available each year.)
(High fives included!) Little Green Thumbs teachers have the support of a local coordinator, access to ongoing professional development and resources, and join a community of LGT teachers across the country.
Watch learning come alive with your Little Green Thumbs garden! Your indoor garden becomes an extension of your classroom and naturally inspires inquiry-based, cross-curricular and experiential learning.
