Life Lab’s first book, The Growing Classroom was published in 1982. Since that time, we have created many wonderful resources. From comprehensive garden-based science activity guides for PreK-5th grades to colorful, educational garden signs, we provide wonderful products to support garden-based learning.

Thank you for such a wonderful field trip experience! Your leaders did such a great job at keeping our kids engaged.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
