APPLE SEEDS

Inspiring Healthy Living Through Garden-Based Education

Garden-based learning reaches into a deep part of all of us. When young students plant a seed, watch it grow, harvest a vegetable and taste something that they had a hand in growing, they remember that experience. And that experience—that moment in the garden—can change them. 

 
 

Based in beautiful Fayetteville, Arkansas, Apple Seeds creates programs that educate and excite young students about healthy food AND increase students’ access to those healthy foods.

Community Impact

Healthy food is a right, not a privilege.

And our community’s well-being is directly tied to theirs. It is through our partnerships with more than 60 local schools and like-minded agencies that Apple Seeds reached 6,687 students and shared more than 4,765 pounds of vegetables in 2017.

I love to see the excitement on the faces of our children when they discover how vegetables are grown and how to prepare healthy snacks. The experiential learning that Apple Seeds provides has such a strong impact on our children that they continue to talk about what they learned there long after the event has occurred.
