ENROLLMENT IS ONGOING: JOIN US AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR
We encourage young people to adopt the mindset of sustainability through urban gardening, cooking, creative building, and scientific inquiry into the natural world.
We practice play-based, self-directed education: Our job is to create a safe, warm, and joyful space for young people, without coercion or excessive requirements.
We spend most of our time OUTDOORS, in the rich environment of the garden. Our belief is that play is the basis of all learning. Our space is entirely SCREEN FREE.
We TEACH biology and botany, with a hands-on daily lesson.
All of our students learn the basics of GARDENING, urban food growing, and cooking.
Our ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND is open every day to our students, and forms a key part of their creative play through construction and de-struction.
We are located at Hope Central Church in JP, at 85 Seaverns Street, Jamaica Plain, one block from the Green Street T Station. We have indoor classrooms, a kitchen for cooking, and a large garden.
Our space includes climbing trees, grass, garden beds, worms, a play structure, swings, a tool shed, and the ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND.
Please come by! The best way to understand what we do is to visit. Contact us at email@example.com to schedule a day and time.
