School Learning Garden Network

The School Learning Garden Network is a collaboration with Seattle Public Schools, Tilth Alliance, and IslandWood. SLGN hosts annual events to engage with school garden coordinators, volunteers, and educators towards advancing outdoor greenspace opportunities for all students.

We would love to hear from you! Please fill out this survey to let us know what you would like to see from the SLGN in the coming year.

Upcoming Events:

Virtual Spring Garden Tours: Now accepting video submissions until May 16th 2022. Videos will be shared the first week of June.

Would you like to share a 10-60 minute recording of a tour of your garden with the SLGN?

Record yourself or have a friend record you as you tour your learning garden. You will be in charge of recording, editing, and uploading the footage. This can be a low-tech “vlog” style recording done on your phone and uploaded onto YouTube. Share about the garden space and features, the people and learners that use the garden, and how outdoor education has functioned in the space. You’re welcome to share any specific lessons that have worked well, how you’ve incorporated culturally-responsive teaching, what volunteer engagement has looked like, or your hopes and dreams for the future of the garden.

For technical assistance on how to create and edit a video, or to submit your recording, please reach out to Thabisa at
