Students in the Garden

Student groups are invited to visit the garden for a class field trip in the spring, summer, or fall. 


Contact Becky at or 207-442-8400 to set up a trip.

  • Field trips take about 45 minutes from start to clean-up and can include a variety of gardening activities.
  • We will have a garden liaison present to assist with the trip, however, it is ideal to have several teacher or parent volunteers to accompany your class for extra assistance.
  • Ask students to wear clothes that can get dirty (including old boots or old sneakers) and dress for the weather. They may bring gardening gloves.
  • Some educators choose to read books, do writing lessons, or other additional activities. If you plan on this, let us know what you are thinking and the approximate time so we can schedule groups accordingly.
