Ground Education’s mission is to partner with local schools to provide year-round garden and environmental awareness experiences for every student during the school day.
Their vision is a green, thriving learning garden with a robust curriculum taught by a dedicated educator at every elementary and K-8 school in Long Beach. Currently, they are in 11 local schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Long Beach. Make sure to check out their YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAfM2fip2QJvZyP4w3hdyCQ/videos
