Little Green Spouts (LGS) is our small classroom gardening program. It is perfect for younger grades, with the fast growing cycles and simple classroom set-up. You can grow microgreens, lettuce, herbs and other greens with your indoor garden in 2-5 weeks. Your small classroom garden will need a 1.5 x 0.5 m (3’ x 2’) space and have close access to an electrical outlet.
You receive lighting equipment, growing trays, soil, seeds, and a teacher’s manual. We provide in-person and online training session on how to have a successful classroom garden and ideas towards curricular connections and activities in the classroom.
