Garden Classrooms

Urban Roots Staff

Our Farm and School Garden Director and our School Garden Manager will be available to assist with your garden. Whether you're just getting started with a garden plan or you're ready to build new beds or have some problems area that need some expertise, we'll be there to help move your garden project forward. We will monitor compliance of your school garden with the Washoe County School District School Garden Handbook and coordinate with the district's Capital Project and Facility Management department.

 

Adopt a School Garden

We'll also work with your school to recruit and train a volunteer group to adopt your school garden. These dedicated folks will be in your garden on regular basis to help make sure weeds are under control, watering is being taken care of, and to assist with regular garden tasks.
