Entity Type
Founding Date

The Big Green is the operator of a community platform designed to build learning gardens in every low-income school across the country. Since 2012, Big Green has been teaching people to grow food, improve nutrition security and mental health, increase time spent outdoors, and cultivate a deeper appreciation for our collective impact on the climate. A combination of playground and outdoor classroom, the learning gardens are spaces where learners discover and get trained on the science of growing fruits and vegetables.
