Children in the United States spend, on average, seven hours facing a screen everyday. PEAS Farm helps our studentsto reconnect with the outside world in a way that fosters a sense of wonder, stewardship, and community. Our school gardens have become an esential place for critical learning opportunities across all content areas. Partners for Education, Agriculture & Sustainability (PEAS) gets communities outside for learning!

PEAS is dedicated to connecting communities to the natural world, with a focus on school and community gardening and outdoor learning, to inspire the preservation and conservation of our precious planet.

Every student at Cunningham receives garden and kitchen lessons throughout the year from our Outdoor Learning Specialist and Farm-to-Table Specialist. These lessons integrate Science & Math with Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.
