About Us

The mission of the Southern Boone Learning Garden is to provide outdoor classroom space and resources; to facilitate fun, authentic learning experiences that challenge students to embrace positive life skills; and to promote collaborative efforts between the Learning Garden, the school district, and the community. Our programming focuses on 3 core areas: 1) garden-based, hands-on outdoor education that is integrated into the school day for preschool - high school students here in the Southern Boone County R-1 school district; 2) after school clubs which provide fun and engaging opportunities for students to learn important life skills including gardening & farming, cooking & nutrition, and environmental awareness, & 3) farm-to-school, farmers markets, & other methods to complete the seed-to-table experience for students while also increasing access to fresh, local, healthy foods in our community.
