The Tiny Gardeners Project

The Tiny Gardeners Project has come to an end.

Sadly we have had to make the decision to call an end to the project. Changes to universities amid the craziness of the past year means that we have lost institutional support for the project, and we missed out on a few large funding opportunities that would have enabled us to keep the Project running for the next few years. Without this financial support we just can’t continue to provide free materials and teacher support, not to mention conduct a rigorous citizen science research project.

Please feel free to use the online materials on this website in your classrooms. We wish you and your students all the best for the future and hope you are staying safe and well.
