Boise Urban Garden School: August Powerful Pint Partner

We are so excited that Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) is our Powerful Pint partner for August!

Meet boise Urban Garden School

BUGS is a nonprofit that teaches youth and adults the fundamentals of gardening and nutrition through science and environmental-based lesson plans.


Education, Sustainability, Community, and Growth. These are the values that are integral to the mission of the Boise Urban Garden School.

Each year, BUGS serves approximately 10,000 youth through their multiple education programs. These include outdoor pre-school, on-site field trips at their ¾ acre organic garden and kitchen, in-school outreach lessons, and culinary and garden camps and classes.

They provide “real life” experiences because they know that a student with the ability to dig in the soil, plant a seed, and watch it grow is excited to eat the fruits of their labor.

Learn With BUGS

Boise Urban Garden School offers year round events and classes. Ranging from adult cooking classes to group field trips for students.

"We teach the fundamentals of environmental and nutrition education through student-centered, experiential lessons that are aligned with Idaho State Standards and designed to spark curiosity and kindle stewardship"

  • BUGS field trips take place in their garden in Comba Park, are tailored to the season, and available year-round. Classes are for groups of 10-30 students.
