Community GroundWorks is looking for five partnering organizations to support regional coordinators for the Wisconsin School Garden Network (WSGN).  WSGN will increase the capacity for garden-based education programs at schools, early care and education centers, afterschool sites, and other community sites across Wisconsin.

Regional coordinators will be responsible for supporting the development of the Wisconsin School Garden Network at about 5% of their work time by conducting trainings, providing technical assistance, and supporting the communication goals of the Network.  

Partnering organizations will receive $3,500 annually to provide support for their staff person to serve as regional coordinator. Organizations will partner with Community GroundWorks through a one-year renewable contract reviewed annually through December 31, 2020.

More information about this request for partnership is available here.

Organizations interested in growing the Wisconsin School Garden Network by supporting a regional coordinator can apply online. The application period will close at midnight on December 1, 2016.

Questions can be addressed to Nathan Larson at or 240-0409.

The Wisconsin School Garden Network is supported by Community GroundWorks and the Environmental Design Lab at UW-Madison and is funded with a five-year grant from the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
