Welcome to the Strawberries in Schools Project

Welcome to the Schoolyard Strawberry Project!
Growing a strawberry garden at your school provides students with a hands-on space to explore the life cycle of a plant and an understanding of cultivating food. Gardens can foster life skills like critical-thinking, problem solving, responsibility, communication and positive self-esteem!

Please explore ideas on how to get your strawberry garden started. Click on the links to the right for a publication on how to grow strawberries in an annual production system. Browse a few lessons by expert teachers for possibilities of what to learn from the garden.
