Global Gardens
This is an educational ministry for children from Union 6th & 7th Grade Center. Through hands-on inquiry based learning, Global Gardens teaches an all-encompassing curriculum that connects the garden with other disciplines and allows students to connect the learning in the garden to both school learning and real life experiences. Their mission is to empower students in low-income communities to be agents of change in their own lives and communities through hands on science and peace education. They believe helping students create a garden is a way to not only assist them in learning about science, health and the environment but also challenge them to become caring, forward-thinking and confident individuals.
