2022-2023 Oregon School Garden Survey
Currently Oregon has 788 school gardens! That’s just over half of the schools in Oregon.
We last did an extensive survey starting in 2017. We spent the past couple years getting feedback of what we were missing, and adding or changing the questions we had. We were ready to send out the survey, and like everything else, we had to pause while COVID ran its course, as many gardens were inactive.
We now have 44 questions, it should take 15-20 minutes to complete a survey for each garden. We ask that everybody should fill out a new survey for this, even if you have filled one out in the past.
It’s important to fill out the survey even if your garden is in hiatus or inactive, as there are many questions that will give us great information while our evaluation team and Oregon Farm to School & School Garden Network continue to shape our future in school gardens! Here's the link to take the survey
