Rock. Their mission is to preserve the relationship between education and the
natural world by providing hands-on, outdoor, education for both kids and
adults. One key focus is teaching folks the origin of the foods they eat. They
also host around 150 hands on gardening and environmental education classes for
school children each year.

The garden serves the students from the adjacent
Gibbs International Magnet Elementary School and Dunbar Magnet Middle School
and functions as an innovative public/private partnership between the Little
Rock Parks and Recreation Department, Gibbs and Dunbar Schools. If you want to
check the spot out sometime, the gardens  are open to the public for learning opportunities and tours
and all are welcome.
