Ready to Grow Gardens
For 21 years, Ready to Grow Gardens has helped children fall in love with gardening, nature, and science. During the 2023 school year, the Ready to Grow Gardens team of garden educators will work in 38 school gardens in the Houston area serving as a "gateway" for thousands of children to learn how to grow fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables. Ready to Grow Gardens works with schools to integrate what is planted and garden activities into schools curricula, aligning lessons with TEKS. Even parents who come to volunteer on garden days can be heard exclaiming, " I didn't know that!" With their help, public and private schools have abundant gardens on their campuses thanks to their garden management expertise, garden educators, teacher resources, and hands-on learning for students.
