Pre-K - 12th grade

EarthBox Education develops and sells Pre-K-12th Grade sustainable container garden systems, customized accessories, and correlated curricula & guides to establish EarthBox Instructional School Gardens. Standards-based lessons develop data collection, analysis and presentation skills also listed in the common core standards. They teach the science behind plants, light, soil, water, and nutrition. Instruction encourages food security practices, healthy eating, service learning, conservation and physical fitness.

Community Gardens

We develop, promote and sell easy-to-use, sustainable container garden systems, accessories & garden guides to establish EarthBox Community Gardens on rooftops, brown lots, sidewalks or wherever there is water and sun. The gardens advance food security, community connectivity and healthy living. They reduce pollutants that cause global warming and environmental degradation. They create green spaces and provide affordable healthy food for a community.
