CitySprouts introduces school gardens as a core element of children’s public education. We partner with public schools to ensure that hands-on learning, environmental stewardship and the experience of growing and eating healthy food become part of every child’s life.
CitySprouts School Partnership Program partners with two public school districts to integrate garden-based learning with teachers’ curriculum and school culture. Our September – June program in over 20 urban elementary schools helps all children develop essential science skills, nurtures their social emotional capabilities, and supports environmental literacy in communities with limited resources.
The CitySprouts Middle School Program provides out-of-school-time opportunities for Boston and Cambridge youth ages 11-14 to gain confidence and skill in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) practices by exploring ecosystems and food systems. Using a combination of gardening, cooking and exploring the neighborhood as a vehicle, our tuition-free after school and summer programs guide young people through projects that engage them in science practices, encourage life-long habits of health, and give them practice being leaders in their community.
After School Clubs Now Enrolling
Youth Leadership Team
Fall After School Club
Our after-school program starts up in October in East Boston and Cambridge. This fall, youth will engineer prototypes for vertical farms using a module based on a curriculum designed by the Museum of Science. They will use the engineering design process to design a solution to food production problems in a changing world. If you would like more information or to enroll please contact middleschoolprogram@
