what we do


We would love to come check out your school and talk about the perfect garden set up for your school! We will discuss your goals for your school, crops that you would like to see grown and give our expert advice for a thriving school garden. After the consultation we will send you a free bid for the cost of the design and build. 



We do it all from start to finish! We prepare the garden site, construct the garden beds, move in a high quality, organic soil and compost, and finalize preparation of the beds for planting.


This cost is separate from the Ready to Grow Gardens Garden Day program. 


We plant your selection of organic vegetables based on the current season either by seed or by seedling depending on the crop with your students, then provide you with simple instructions for watering, fertilization, and harvest. 

Seeds are always included in the price of our Garden Day program. 



We love teaching students in the garden! We have a team of wonderful garden educators eager to lead your students in fun, educational experiences in a garden classroom.

We will come to your school for a full school day and teach our unique, hands-on Garden Day science curriculum to your students. 

"Whenever it is Garden Day, our kids are absolutely ecstatic for the chance to be outside...As a campus principal, I love it because it is tied to Science TEKS-based instruction but, most importantly, I love it because it puts a big smile on our kids' faces."
Jose Hilario Cordova
Former Principal, Memorial Elementary HISD
