DESIGN

Design Tool

Use the garden design tool to input your garden dimensions, then add plant beds, paths, water features, and more. The Living Systems activity guide helps teachers show how the garden serves as a model ecosystem.

MEASURE

Add Data

How does your garden grow? Observe, then use the measurement tools to collect data on how your garden filters water, provides habitat, produces food, decreases your carbon footprint, and engages your community.

TRACK

Your Garden

Track your garden data over time to understand how it helps keep nature healthy and productive. You’ll also be contributing to the program’s overall statistics about the collective conservation impact of our gardens.
