Schoolyard Roots (formerly DCGP) is committed to growing gardens and growing minds. By increasing access to fresh, locally-grown produce, we empower our community to make healthy and sustainable food choices.
We use school gardens, farm stands and educational programs to help diverse communities in Alabama build vibrant food systems.
Using our unique curriculum, we teach a hands-on science- and math-based education to Kindergartners through 5th graders. Every week during the school year, students explore science by participating in our outdoor teaching tool – the garden. Students dissect carrots to learn about tap roots, they multiply recipes to understand fractions, they go on math-based scavenger hunts to unfold the secrets of the garden, and so much more.
