ATLANTA -- 173 schools across metro-Atlanta have outdoor learning labs. The Captain Planet Foundation's Project Learning Garden™ is designed to help teachers lead hands-on lessons about the environment while helping kids K-12 to develop an understanding of natural systems and the benefits of a healthy diet.
By the end of 2020, Captain Planet Foundation plans to have learning gardens in all Cobb, Gwinnett, Fulton, DeKalb and Atlanta Public Schools. To learn more about CPF's Learning Gardens and apply to bring the program to your school, click here.
CPF was co-founded by Ted Turner in 1991 and is now chaired by his daughter, Laura Turner Seydel.
