Cultivation Cruiser brings the Gardens to your classroom with plants, fun and unique activities, and planting projects. Our programs will engage your students’ natural curiosity to excite them about the world of plants – all within the confines of your classroom. Age ranges below are suggestions; we can adapt most programs to meet the needs of a variety of learners.
- Programs are 1 hour long and cost $120 per session; programs are limited to 30 students per session. Start times available during the school day based on your schedule.
- Schools must be within the SCFD to book in-person cruiser programs. If you are outside of the SCFD please book a virtual outreach program.
- A bilingual Spanish-speaking instructor may be available upon request.
