What makes Veggie U special and different is that our program is grounded first in academics, and then in fun!

We have been vetted by a content correlation service (EdGate®) to ensure our program contains the core concepts for plant science. We took those core concepts and created fun experiences that get kids excited and wanting to learn more. The kids literally get their hands dirty and plant their own mini-crop, tending it and learning from it in daily lessons that are instructive, but seem more like play!

With extensive journaling activities, team work, problem solving, and skill development, Veggie U Classroom Gardens are an interactive, fun way for students to learn required concepts.

The Veggie U Primary Classroom Garden is a turn-key program shipped complete to educators. link

Our goal is always to sustain the program each year in the schools. This ensures that every student has the opportunity to have a Classroom Garden education. Refill Gardens are for subsequent years contain only the perishable items.

While some schools buy their own, Veggie U also seeks donors, grants and sponsors to fund Classroom Gardens. Sometimes our funding is restricted by donors to specific geographic areas (school districts, health deparments, counties) or populations. If funding isn't available for a particular school, we work with the school to identify local sources of funds.

A new Primary Classroom Garden and a new A+ garden are each $600 per classroom.
The perishable contents of the gardens can be replenished for $250 in subsequent years.
