About Education

The Hort partners with public and private schools in New York City to develop customized in-school programs. Trained educators spend a semester with students to sharpen their knowledge and curiosity about plant sciences, nutrition, and outdoor discovery. Educators, with the help of students and teachers, supervise and maintain school garden sites throughout the summer and over breaks. The collaboration culminates in student projects that have a lasting impact on the community and includes green walls, learning gardens, and greenhouses.
