Get to Know Life Lab
Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, nourishing food, and nature through garden-based education, and is a national leader in the school garden movement. For over forty years, Life Lab has provided tens of thousands of educators across the country with the inspiration and information necessary to engage young people in educational gardens. Rooted in a commitment to racial equity, Life Lab partners intentionally with communities where systemic racism creates barriers to nature, wellness, and experiential education to promote liberatory garden-based educational opportunities that are accessible to all. Life Lab’s workshops, consultations, and award-winning publications are go-to resources for educators and families interested in engaging young people in gardens.
