Earthwise is dedicated to education. Our programs connect children with nature by inviting exploration and discovery at the Earthwise Garden and Farm. School groups enjoy hands-on learning through our curriculum-linked EcoTours. We also offer SR 12, a high school science course coordinated by the Delta School District.
What do worms need to live? How do plants grow? What might exist in a garden habitat? How do gardens support animal life?
Our Earthwise Garden EcoTours reconnect children with nature, giving them a unique opportunity to explore the secret lives of garden creatures, delve into the activities of insects, plant seeds, and wiggle with worms.

Do your students know where their food comes from?
Our Earthwise Farm Ecotours connect with food production, from tasting fresh organic produce to learning how food grows. Students get their hands dirty as they explore our organic farm, and learn about composting, soil formation, life cycles, and food systems.
