Jeffers Foundation


There has been much publicity regarding the positive effects that gardens can have on a school. Jeffers Foundation has identified over 40 schools and organizations that have successful school garden programs. On the right you will find a link to a school garden video that will answer many of the questions you may have on how to start and sustain a school garden.

The school buttons below each link to a page with a short video on each school's garden, a case study in PDF format and photos taken at each site. Also, refer to our School Garden Archive Site to see additional School Garden Programs.

We hope this information proves useful in helping you consider the benefits a school garden may have for your school.
