CitySprouts is a school and community program that integrates academic, health and environmental education in the public schools and in the neighborhood. Working closely with school administrators, teachers and families, CitySprouts creates school gardens and provides essential support to schools as they extend existing curricula to these outdoor classrooms. CitySprouts’ school and community partnerships ensure that CitySprouts gardens are accessible to children during school, after school and in the summer.
Since 2000 CitySprouts has partnered with the Cambridge Public Schools to create a thriving, district-wide school garden program serving over 4,000 urban children, half of whom are low-income. As of 2009-2010, CitySprouts program operates at all 12 (K-8th grade) schools in Cambridge, serving every child in the city. In the last year, CitySprouts expanded into Boston, and is now partnering with 4 Boston Public Schools. With this new growth, CitySprouts is now serving over 6,000 youth in Boston and Cambridge.
