Seed Programs International

seeds for school gardensSchool gardens grow vegetables, and also grow future leaders to counter hunger and poverty in their communities. In many locations, a garden-supported school lunch is the only healthy meal a child will receive during the day. These gardens enrich the learning environment, motivate parents to keep kids in school, and teach kids the value of engaging with the land.

Our new project, Seeds and Support for School Gardens Worldwide, will help grow a generation of young adults who can lead families and communities to greater health, economic growth, and resilience to crisis. With your help, we're growing gardens in 9 countries in 2019!

Ayiti KonseVet (AKV), one of our long-term partners in Haiti, has a strong tradition of working with students and school gardens. Under Agronomist Wedly Pierre Décéus’ supervision, AKV has trained teachers, established gardens, and provided support services to schools throughout the regions they serve. To quote, “AKV has a vision to establish school gardens everywhere.”

We’re proud to work with AKV and other partners who support school gardens across the world. We hope you’ll consider supporting them through our project today.
