Program Descriptions

Garden Science Partnerships

Garden Science is our School Garden Partnership Program. We commit to working with low-income schools in the Washington, DC region for a minimum of 3 years as they grow and establish an integrated school garden which serves as an outdoor science classroom, a living nutrition lab, and a creative space to get in touch with nature!


Green Ambassador High School Internships

Our Green Ambassadors Program is a 6-week summer high school internship located here at the demonstration garden. Interns learn how to garden, prepare and eat healthy produce, visit and learn about other green organizations, and much more!


SPROUT Field Trips

Science Program Reaching Out (SPROUT) is the Washington Youth Garden’s field trip program that invites youth and educators from all over the Washington metro area to visit our demonstration garden site here at the National Arboretum!
