Our mission is to cultivate joyful connections with the natural world
through outdoor learning and edible education!
19 schools in Austin ISD & 1 private during the 2020-2021 school-year!
We are thrilled to be working with the following Austin area schools:
Even with the presence of Covid last school year, PEAS delivered 1495 individual lessons while engaging over 1400 students and 213 teachers in over 12,149 student hours of outdoor learning and edible education!
What participants are saying about our programs:
- "The teachers who worked with PEAS became proficient in taking their classes outside and incorporating the outdoors into many subject areas, the students said their favorite grade was the grade they got to do PEAS. The parents also loved it because students would tell them about the lessons and bring home ideas, and many students even started garden projects at their houses." Principal, Langford Elementary (on why she wanted to partner with PEAS at her new school.)
- "Thank you so much for your support this year! We have seen our outdoor spaces bloom with plants and veggies. Our students have been able to see so many transformations this year. It has been remarkable and your support has been an integral piece." Assistant Principal, Linder Elementary
- "It was FUN learning! PEAS programs provide outside resources and use teaching moments so students can connect with real world opportunities." Teacher, TA Brown Elementary
- "Thank you for picking up where we left off last year. We LOVE the PEAS program and so do the 1st graders. Excellent way for students to learn about the environment in an outdoor setting. Students also benefit social emotionally from this experience and we see a positive impact in them." Teacher, Sunset Valley Elementary
- "The instructors were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was wonderful to have their guidance this first year in our new space to learn how to build lessons around common themes and outdoor spaces." Teacher, Govalle Elementary
- "All the lessons were incredible! The content was supportive and additive to our science lessons and we visited the garden on our own to take advantage of the (interpretive) signs relating to weekly lessons." Teacher, Cunningham Elementary
