Nothing peaks a child's curiosity like exploring a thriving garden. Our Garden Educators bring science to life in our outdoor garden classroom during this 26-week program offered to 2nd and 3rd grade students.

Weekly garden-based science classes connect students with their health, the planet and their community; cultivating environmental literacy during a critical time in their development. Currently offered at Farallone View and Hatch Elementary Schools.

My child is learning good nutritional values of foods. I value that it’s a hands on environment and he’s having fun learning and bringing home recipes from foods the class has grown and eating new things.”

Garden Club

We lead a weekly Garden Club offered to 1st through 5th grade students at two elementary school sites. This drop-in program offers interested students the opportunity to get their hands dirty, cultivate a love for garden-grown fruits and veggies, and deepen their connection to the garden.

I love that they are learning about gardening. Growing food is a basic skill that they will carry with them for life - everyone should learn to garden!”
— Parent of 3rd Grader

Junior Marketeer

For graduates of the Intensive Garden Program, our Junior Marketeer Program allows 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to continue learning about health, environment, and agriculture through lending a hand at THP’s Farmers' Market booth! Marketeers work alongside THP’s farm staff, applying math, customer service and marketing skills, and sharing their knowledge of fruits and veggies with the public.

Check out our Junior Marketeer form to learn more about this opportunity to volunteer. Download the English or Spanish Application.

My favorite part of the day was when I went to HEAL class!”
