We are pleased to share garden education resources developed by Education Outside. Education Outside was a nonprofit operating throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and committed to advancing science education in public schools, outdoors. Education Outside closed its doors in June of 2019, but garden-based programming continues in many of these schools through other organizations, including FoodCorps. 

These resources represent best practices and lessons learned by Education Outside over eight years of training and deploying garden educators in public schools. These materials are for use by schools, School Garden Support Organizations, AmeriCorps programs, or other environmental education programs working in schools. These resources cover a range of topics related to building and maintaining garden education programs, as well as curriculum from kindergarten through 5th grade. 

Please note that these resources are made available to the public for free, but are not for commercial use. Credit should be given to Education Outside if any material is used or adapted. These resources were not developed by FoodCorps and reflect Education Outside programming, not FoodCorps programming.
