Community gardens as the classroom!


We partnered with Denver Urban Gardens and Denver Public Schools to support early childhood education (ECE) teachers in using the community gardens and food to teach STEM concepts to their students. From hypotheses to tasting, students can use food to discover the world around them!

Lesson guides and materials are designed for ECE classrooms, however the concepts and many of the activities can be done kids of all ages, in school or at home!

Questions about using the lessons in your classroom? Reach out to us at

Send us your suggestions!

We have so many ideas and hopes for future programs, and we to hear what you would like to see from the museum. What have you always wondered about food? Or a museum or event experience that really resonated with you? What did you think about our latest event.

Let us know - we want to hear from you!

Thanks for submitting! We'll get back to you ASAP!
