Educational gardens for all
Students grow plants, fruits and vegetables with project-based learning all year long.
Vireo’s educational approach
Each student has different needs and learns in different ways. Taking this reality into account, the Vireo project advocates an inclusive, flexible and immersive pedagogical approachthat responds to different learning needs and contexts in schools.
With this in mind, the educational project can fit easily into any teaching environment and we support you to ensure the optimization of learning.
Our gardens promote active learning
With the Vireo school garden, the students are placed at the very center of the project. Each year it’s possible for you to create a new educational experience in which students are concretely involved in the process and decisions.
