The Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) program utilizes a ¾ acre organic garden as the foundation for learning. BUGS teaches youth and adults the fundamentals of gardening through science, nutrition, and environmental based lesson plans and activities.

During the cooler months the indoor space can facilitate groups up to 40 individuals. During the school year the BUGS education team is focused on facilitating on-site field trips, outreach lessons and evening programs. Summer offers week long garden and culinary camps as well as outreach and field trips.
