All Gardens Welcome!

Gardens may be of any size and shape.  They may be for butterflies, flowers, fruits and vegetables, or agricultural crops.  Schools may use synthetic fertilizers, organic materials, or some combination thereof.  Greenhouses or nursery, raise-beds or large open plots – all are welcome.  As long as your garden is accessible to all the students and teachers in your school you are eligible to become an NFL School.
