School gardens cultivate not only plants and animals, but also the academic, personal and interpersonal skills of the students who tend them. The KidsGrow themed garden plants and ideas for teaching and learning encourage kids to engage in gardening that is:

• Purposeful
• Smart
• Connected
• Fun

Kidsgrow themed gardens

KidsGrow themed gardens offer authentic contexts for deep learning. Not only are learning outcomes achieved in the traditional areas of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values, but also in terms of activity, problem solving, progessive behaviour, creativity, enjoyment and inspiration.

Resources for schools


School gardens cultivate not only plants and animals but also the academic, personal and interpersonal skills of the students who tend them. The KidsGrow resources for schools encourage kids to learn while having fun in the garden.

The Important resources for schools include an overview of the learning outcomes for each of the four themed gardens, how they link to the Australian Sustainable Schools initative and practical tips for gardening at school.

The colourful A3 poster, KidsGrow garden links to learning, illustrates how KidsGrow gardening activities link to the school curriculum and encourage interdisciplinary learning.
