PLANTING SEEDS OF CHANGE

Our mission at Global Gardens is to empower low-income students to be agents of change in their own lives and communities through inquiry-based science and peace education. We believe helping students create a garden is a way not only to assist them in learning about science, health and the environment, but also to challenge them to become caring, forward-thinking and confident individuals.
OUR STORY

TRANSFORMING LIVES

We serve over 2,500 people at five sites in Tulsa with during school, after school, and summer programs. We also facilitate two on-site community gardens specifically for families. Join our volunteer team and help us better serve those in our community.

Magic in the Dirt | July 15-19 | 1st– 3rd Grade

In partnership with Monte Cassino School, we are excited to offer Magic in the Dirt. Campers will explore the gardens, investigate how insects help and hurt our world, participate in experiments, and cook with garden produce. And they just might learn some garden-themed songs, too! For more information, please visit: https://www.montecassino.org/camp-monte 

“Above all, working with the students taught us the value of celebrating small victories, of committing to a task whole-heartedly and of the peace and accomplishment to be found in the garden.”
– Jenni, After School Volunteer
