Granny's Garden School's Loveland campus is the
hub for school garden programs in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
Through our three major programs: The school garden at Loveland Primary
& Elementary Schools, The Schoolyard Nature Network and The Family
Garden Project, we offer plant based, environmental education and
hands-on experiences to Loveland's K-4th grade students, encourage and
support them with developing gardens in their own back yard (and at a
satellite site, if circumstances prevent a home garden), and assist
other school garden developers with creating their own garden programs.
We draw the
immediate and general community in
through a variety of hands-on programs and events. The campus is also the
incubator for developing and testing new ideas and processes for school
There is a Granny's
Garden School Center within walking distance of the school gardens at the
Primary & Elementary Schools and facilities for cooking
classes, workshops and training.
The Granny's Garden School website is
the Hub utilized by local and
national school garden programs who access it for lesson guides, how-to lesson guide videos
and other information to support their programs.
Through the Schoolyard Nature Network
train we train school garden developers, hire and train school garden
coordinators to manage the programs at member sites and serve as a
resource bank for securing in-kind donations of tools and other
materials needed for a school garden program.
The Granny's Garden School
foundation has been established to fund the Granny's Garden School operation and train garden educators to work in
collaboration with member schools who are establishing school garden programs.
