Science, Education and Community: Organically Grown

In 2001, Krasny received a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Informal Science Education program to create Garden Mosaics, a project that merges gardening with education in urban areas. Since then, the project has expanded into dozens of cities across the United States and abroad, and has received recognition from national educational groups and gardening associations.

Teachers should contact the garden coordinator or lead gardener to be sure he or she is aware of the goals of the program and will meet the teacher and students at the garden.
