Get connected beyond your garden gate!

Often times, in your eagerness to move beyond your garden, classroom or program, you want to reach out to others – to learn from them, share your story, or bring your efforts into the greater community.  We offer a diversity of ways to connect with others.

There is power in learning from others, and richness in sharing the good work you’ve done with the world!  We want to hear from you! Fill out this survey to tell us about your program.

Citizen Science

Citizen Science is an exciting partnership between the public and professional scientists.  An opportunity for you and your students to conduct meaningful research, citizen science answers real-world questions with the help of observations and other data from your garden, schoolyard, and community.

Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners (VVfG) – Read about, review, and find sources for more than 6,000 vegetable varieties.

Vegetable Variety Trials and Demonstration Gardens

Vegetable Variety Investigations (Vvi) is the youth component of VVfG, connecting youth with gardeners in their community to learn interviewing skills and explore biodiversity.
