VSDB Educational Urban Farm & Greenhouse
“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.” — Gertrude Jekyll
VSDB’s CROPS program and its Educational Urban Farm foster a culture of responsibility, independence, community, and wellness through outdoor experiential learning.
The program deepens students’ abilities to make connections between the natural world, their community, and themselves. And it’s a source of wonder, beauty, and profound enjoyment.
