Light Gardens

This indoor gardening program gives students the opportunity to grow and eat healthy food right in their own classrooms! 

Agriculture in the Classroom PEI (AITC-PEI) provides an indoor light kit, garden supplies, classroom resources, and training to help foster hands-on, inquiry-based learning. The indoor gardens are living laboratories where students explore, discover, experience, and LEARN! As students actively co-operate to care for their garden they learn about agriculture, nutrition, environmental stewardship, public trust, sustainable food systems, and community interdependence

Your students will have engaging learning experiences with our curriculum-based programs connecting students and agriculture! We work in partnership with many organizations to develop and deliver educational experiences your students will love. We ensure all of our information is accurate, balanced and current.

Teachers across Canada are adding this powerful learning tool to their classrooms.  Little Green Sprouts is trademarked and managed by Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan, and is growing across the country with schools from Newfoundland, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
