Denise Rowcroft (she/her)

Garden for Every School Program Manager, The Environmental Center

Education Regional Hub Coordinator

Deschutes, Crook & Jefferson Counties

Our regional hub serves as a place - both virtual and in person - where Central Oregon educators can share ideas, resources and network around garden-based education and supporting school gardens in our high desert climate.

Our Garden Educator Network kicked off in 2016 and brings people together 2-3 times a year in different school garden settings. This is part of our Garden for Every School program, which supports educators, schools and districts with technical assistance, financial support, and direct service connecting students to food and nature in the classroom, cafeteria, and school gardens.
