Who is MSGN?

The Maine School Garden Network consists of teachers, community members, parents, students, professionals, farmers, and anyone who believes in the profound importance of teaching children to garden, and the far-reaching value of adding a gardening curriculum to our schools. Our Board members have experience and skills in such diverse fields as education, nutrition, horticulture, agriculture and soil science, environmental studies, community building, and resource management, and volunteer their time and knowledge to provide guidance and support to anyone who works with educational gardens in Maine. To learn more about the Network, visit our About MSGN or Board of Directors page.

What do we do?

We strive to develop projects and programs that enable youth in Maine to:

  • Learn how food and fiber is grown and gain an understanding of Maine agriculture
  • Experience growing, preparing, and enjoying their own food
  • Discover first-hand the connection between locally-grown fresh produce and good health
  • Participate in a garden-based curriculum to enhance learning across subject areas
  • Spend active time outdoors, cultivating an appreciation for nature
  • Be part of a project which connects their school with the local community
