Garden Clubs

Garden clubs are Bronco Urban Gardens longest running garden-based enrichment program. 

Our partnerships with Washington and Gardner Elementary coordinates with subsidized after school care, in order to provide weekly lessons in the garden. Garden clubs designed to promote community involvement in the care and maintenance of their school garden, with a special emphasis on K-2 grade enrichment, while providing Arrupe Weekly Engagement placement opportunities for SCU undergraduates.

The BUG food justice initiative has a special history with The Thriving Neighbors Initiative, with our presence in the Washington neighborhood often overlapping.  In 2018, The Center for Sustainability and The Ignatian Center, in an effort to strengthen both programs, pooled resources and expertise to launch a collaborative project- BUG Garden Lab. The BUG Garden Lab is a garden-based enrichment program that is designed to increase the use of the school garden to deepen scientific inquire. This collaboration broadens Thriving Neighbors’ reach, bringing new programming to the Gardner campus and community.
