Earthwise is dedicated to education. Our programs connect children with nature by inviting exploration and discovery at the Earthwise Garden. 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.
