Spend time learning in the Gardens

Children's Peace Garden field trips are engaging, hands-on, and will enhance the elementary science curriculum. During a Children’s Peace Garden field trip, students have the opportunity engage in activities focused on local food, organic gardening practices, the importance of biodiversity and community, and reconnecting with the Earth through experiential gardening activities.

Onsite field trips with up to 3 hours of programming are available March 15 – October 15 for groups with up to 80 children.

Field trips are available Monday - Friday.  After school hours are also available.

All types of groups are welcome - Preschool, Elementary Schools, Girl or Boy Scouts, Home-schools and other Community Groups!

Field Trip themes and activities align with the rhythms of the garden growing season in relation to the school year and align with the Colorado Model Content Standards for Science and Social Studies. 

Spring and fall field trips are $4 per student. Summer field trips are $6 per student. There is no additional charge for teachers and adult chaperones. Field trips are located at our Growing Garden’s agriculture site at 1630 Hawthorn Ave., Boulder, CO.

We will work with your schedule and curriculum needs to provide an engaging and educational experience in the garden. If you are not able to attend a field trip but would like Growing Gardens to visit your classroom, please consider our Classroom Visits. We are happy to bring the garden to you!
