SGN raises $2,000 through the Human Race!

The School Garden Network would like to thank everyone that supported us through the Human Race this year.  We raised $2,000 – enough to provide two Cooking in the Garden Grants to Sonoma County schools!  Several current and past Board and staff members showed up to race with the other 9,000 runners.  The Human Race is a wonderful event that continues to raise much needed funding for Sonoma County non-profits.  We appreciate you choosing to support SGN and garden-based learning in Sonoma County schools.  THANK YOU!

Get Involved! Volunteer with SGN!

Are you interested in learning about and supporting local school garden projects? Improving school food? Fostering garden-based learning? Connecting kids with the natural world and where food comes from? We are currently seeking passionate people who would like to join the School Garden Network of Sonoma County, now in our 10th year!


School Garden Network of Sonoma County (SGN) accomplishes most of its work through small committees. The amount of time you put in depends on the project.  Click HERE to learn more about SGN Committees.

We are also looking for a few more committed Board members to lend their passion and skills to the organization. Board members actively participate in creating and sustaining school garden projects.  Click HERE for a Board Job Description.

Fundraising – research and solicit new donors, research and write grants, or follow-up with donors.

Outreach – post Facebook and Community Forum updates, represent SGN at community events (i.e. tabling), sell SGN t-shirts at events, organize a garden tour, collect and maintain our free resources, connect with community partners and businesses or advocate for school gardens.
