In Our Schools
What We Do
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.
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.
John Taylor and Lorraine Gibbons use EarthBox® gardening systems to turn a vacant lot into a thriving farm, bringing fresh local produce to the 'food desert' of Newark, creating green jobs, educational and job training opportunities.
UPDATE: Brick City Urban Farms is now Garden State Urban Farms. For more info, go to http://www.gardenstateurbanfarms.com or contact Lorraine Gibbons: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mayor Jim Lawrence and Bob Brotherton of Brotherton Engineering open the first ever city-funded EarthBox® community garden for the town of Indian Shores, FL. This garden uses EarthBox® gardening systems to overcome poor soil and to make gardening more accessible to the seniors in their community.
