City Schoolyard Garden

City Schoolyard Garden (CSG) believes that young people deserve the opportunity to learn by doing, connect to their food sources, and access healthy food in school. We actualize this by building outdoor garden classrooms in Charlottesville, Virginia public schools, providing over 2,200 youth with opportunities for hands-on learning. We also support teachers with professional training and lesson plans to use the garden as part of their classroom teaching. Our overall mission is to cultivate academic achievement, health, environmental stewardship, and community engagement through garden-based experiential learning.
