Learning Garden Program

Highlights of the Program

Incentive Payments:  The NFL Learning Garden Program will support schools at a funding level of up to $3,000 over two years to establish NFL Learning Gardens in K-12 schools across Canada.  


Hub Support:  Green Manitoba, as Manitoba Hub, will manage the Manitoba Program on behalf of Nutrients for Life Canada.


Teacher Training:  NFL Educational Coordinators provide pedagogical assistance and conduct professional development workshops with NFL Learning Garden schools. Soil testing kits may be provided to teachers during workshops.


Lesson Plans:  NFL has created lesson plans that support the establishment of NFL Learning Gardens.  Resources for teachers and students are available on the NFL website (  Green Manitoba also provides sample lessons in their Guide to Educators in Canada.
