Reconnect students to nature with Vireo’s hydroponic garden program

We support teachers in cultivating eco-citizens while students experience the magic of growing vegetables and learning to care for nature, themselves and each other in class.

See the magic!

How does it work?

Garden

Create a stimulating environment with a hassle-free garden. Powerful, hands-on learning and development tool.

Digital platform

Bring innovation to your school! Content and activities that engage your students and develop their autonomy.

Pedagogy and support

Educational program and resources designed to help schools offer immersive and memorable project-based learning.

A turnkey system to create a stimulating environment that allows students to connect with nature and learn healthy lifestyle habits.

The Vireo school garden is integrated into the students’ environment, enabling them to interact with nature on a daily basis. This immediate proximity to the vegetable garden makes it possible to create lasting impacts on their lifestyle and education. As a result, their creativity, well-being and productivity could be greatly improved.

Vireo is more than just food production, it’s the development of essential life skills, entrepreneurial spirit, discipline, and learning with and about nature.

« The vegetable garden is transformed into a living laboratory where young people can observe, experiment, understand and cooperate in real life. The hydroponic garden becomes a meaningful place of learning, as does experimenting with indoor gardening. »
