SGN Affiliate Program is designed to connect local schools with businesses that want to support school garden programs. We identify goods and services that are integral to a garden program’s success and then reach out to local and regional businesses to see if they want to support programs by offering free or discounted goods. This is a symbiotic relationship that helps create mutually supportive connections. We assess that schools are actively engaged in providing hands on garden education to children, and are currently affiliated with over 70 school garden programs throughout the county.
