Survey Closes on February 21.

Life Lab, in collaboration with the California School Garden Network, is conducting a survey of California School Gardens. This same survey was conducted in 2010-11 with 580 respondents. The information gathered from this survey will help those that are creating and supporting school garden projects across the state and nation to better understand how school gardens operate.

Take the survey at
www.http://fluidsurveys.com/s/california-school-garden-survey/

Please help spread the word of this survey via your school garden team and larger networks. Our goal is for every school in California to respond to the survey. For schools that do not have gardens we want to know what the barriers are. For schools with gardens we want to know what makes them work and what resources are needed to sustain them.

IF YOUR SCHOOL DOES NOT HAVE A GARDEN PROGRAM THE SURVEY WILL TAKE LESS THAN 5 MINUTES.

FOR THOSE RESPONDING THAT HAVE A GARDEN THE SURVEY SHOULD TAKE ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO COMPLETE.

Preview all survey questions in a Word document.

Please ensure that this survey is answered by the person who will have the most in-depth knowledge about your school garden and its functions. If there are multiple coordinators of your garden please communicate with them regarding who will be answering the survey to reduce the chances of duplicate survey responses for your school garden. Please note that this survey is meant to be answered for one school garden only. (ie. If you are involved with more than one garden, please fill out an individual survey for each garden.) You may take the survey multiple times for each garden that you are involved with.

Survey results will be available at www.lifelab.org/schoolgardensurvey2014 and www.csgn.org by the spring of 2014. 

Thanks for sharing!
