Insight Garden Program

Curriculum model graphicTransformative Curriculum

IGP’s staff and volunteers facilitate weekly classes focused on a holistic curriculum that tends to both the “inner” and “outer” gardener.

Our “inner gardener” classes integrate transformational tools such as meditation, emotional process work and ecotherapy. In flower and vegetable gardens, people practice “outer gardening,” where our diverse class participants also learn the basics of organic gardening, human/ecological systems and useful work and life skills.

Our transformational approach is based in on learning strategies from neuroscience and action-based learning. When combined with experiential gardening, participants experience big picture shifts that can last a lifetime.
