Consulting Services (Fee-based): WMG provides discounted consultation services to K-12 schools to assist in planning and implementing integrative and affordable schoolyard landscape solutions. We specialize in coordinating the design and implementation process with curriculum objectives.
Schoolyard Programs (Fee-based): WMG provides comprehensive educational packages at a discounted rate to K-12 schools. We believe in the importance of engaging students through hands-on implementation of outdoor learning laboratories located at the school. If you are ready to start a program you may contact WMG to set up a site visit and discuss project opportunities and costs. WMG will provide you with an estimate to run a semester long project or workshop series with your school.
*Native Habitat through Rain Gardens (Grant funded): WMG periodically receives grant funds from the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife to cover the implementation costs for creating water harvesting gardens to support native habitat. Schools who receive grants will be asked to provide matching funds. Based on available funding WMG has one or two grant rounds per year, and selects two to four schools to work with.
