MissionGreen Our Planet is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation organization that runs the largest and one of the most comprehensive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) school garden and hydroponics programs in the United States. The program's mission is to increase student academic performance in STEM subjects as well as to conserve and protect the environment through project-based STEM education, which includes nutrition, financial literacy, and conservation education in PreK-12 schools.
What We DoGreen Our Planet helps schools across the country create comprehensive outdoor garden and indoor hydroponic programs that teach STEM, nutrition, entrepreneurship, and conservation. The gardens are used as "living laboratories," which help inspire students to become the next generation of scientists, farmers, chefs, and entrepreneurs.
97% of the teachers who use our school garden programs recommend them to other schools while our programs are now the largest of their kind in the country. We work with schools everywhere from Alaska to Florida because we are able to deliver our programming online. We also run the only school garden programs accredited by STEMworks in the U.S.
