Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

Be a Part of Life Lab's Giving Garden

Community Cultivation

We know that garden-based learning is important to you.  Like a garden, Life Lab needs pollinators to help us grow our programs. Please share our work with friends and family and donate as you are able to our Healthy Futures Giving Garden.

Pollinators for Healthy Futures

Giving Opportunities

A beautiful way to provide a sustaining contribution is through monthly giving, and we have special premiums for you when you pledge a year of monthly donations!

Life Lab gardens are still closed to visitors, resulting in continued suspension of our school field trips, educator workshops, and summer camps. This severely impacts our budget, as our team works in other ways to support current community needs. Life Lab’s resilience through these changing times is only possible with the support of donors like you!

Below are links for you to make a one-time donation or monthly pledge for the coming year. Choose Monthly Giving and receive one of the optional fun premium gifts below!
