GARDEN RANGER PROGRAM
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT
NEW SCHOOLS INTO OUR PROGRAM UNTIL SPRING 2022.
Through our Garden Ranger Program, a trained garden teacher visits the school once a week to engage students in the garden. We do our best so schedule a program that works with the needs of a school. Through our 6-week rotations, we aim to have all students from the school participate in the program. The program is interactive, hands-on, and STEM-based.
Our K-12 Garden Ranger curriculum is engaging, fun, and interactive. Utilizing the garden, students learn about a wide array of topics, from learning how to care for an organic garden to learning about the importance of pollinators. Our STEM-based curriculum has been developed over the years to cater to our program and to all our students. Lessons are grade-appropriate and also follow current academic standards.
All our Garden Rangers are trained and vetted by EnrichLA, according to all LAUSD standards. Our Garden Rangers have the skills and experience to provide schools with an amazing garden program.
Through our program, our Garden Rangers are responsible for maintaining the garden space throughout the school year and during summer. EnrichLA provides all the tools and materials for the program. EnrichLA also troubleshoots any issues with the drip irrigation system and garden.
