Saturday, May 7th from 9 to 1 at Northlake Elementary. Help us bring real food and hands-on learning to more of our community AND help your own garden grow with veggies, herbs, perennials and more all grown by students!

Check out this short video to learn more about Lower Columbia School Gardens: how it all started, and how we engage kids and families.

Give to School Gardens

Lower Columbia School Gardens raises a large portion of its budget from private donations. You can join us and help these gardens to grow!


Volunteers make it possible for school kids in our area to reap the benefits of garden based learning. Become a volunteer and work toward a smarter, healthier, more connected community.

We thank Willapa Hills Audubon Society for sponsoring a garden AmeriCorps position! This allowed us to increase our reach significantly, and connect hundreds more kids and families with real food and hands-on learning in school gardens.

What We Do

Lower Columbia School Gardens helps schools start and sustain dynamic, thriving garden programs.

LCSG helps design and build new gardens, develop curriculum, coordinate community partners and support... [Continue to About page].
