“Fruits and vegetables are delicious and good for you. They make you very healthy. And that's why I love Sammy and Joe and this garden program for all they have done to our hearts, to make us a good gardening people." – Genesis, gardener, age 6

School Sprouts Educational Gardens collaborates with educators and community partners to design and implement standards-driven, hands-on garden education programs at several elementary and middle schools in Western Massachusetts. They cultivate enhanced academic performance and student wellness through a multidisciplinary approach that inspires lifelong learning.

The film explores the birth of one of these gardens in an urban public school in Springfield, Mass. as a flourishing outdoor learning space, and the kids’ relationship with growing and eating food together.

Told from the point of view of the young gardeners themselves, this inspiring short film shows people of all ages the beauty of gardening together and anywhere – even in a parking lot.
