The School Ground Greening Coalition (SGGC) has been working with schools in the Portland area to bring nature to school grounds since 2002. We provide logistical support and seed money for greening projects, as well as workshops for teachers and parents. We have recently begun offering Consulting Services for schools outside the Portland area.
School ground greening projects can take on various forms: natural play features, trails, habitat gardens, food gardens, outdoor classrooms, seating areas, and so much more. We work closely with professional landscape architects who specialize in designing creative and engaging spaces for children.
Please visit our SGGC Flickr site to see photos of our school projects throughout the Portland area.
The SGGC is a project of Portland Trails.
