Hudson Valley Seed educates children in school gardens, empowering students through curriculum-integrated lessons focused on hands-on outdoor learning, healthy eating, and academic success.

Hudson Valley Seed (HVS) educators bring more than 60 K-5 classes each week outside to school gardens to garden and learn. By planting, nurturing, harvesting, preparing, and eating vegetables in their school garden students develop a healthy relationship with their food and with the greater natural world while also gaining skills in science, math and literacy. HVS currently serves 3,122 students a year across seven elementary schools.
