GCG Learning Gardens for Schools are ideal for the practice of Garden Education for children with limited mobility and learning disabilities. Children learn new skills, have fun, socialize and develop self-confidence by spending time tending plants and growing their own food. The Green Circle Garden GCG can improve physical and mental functions of children and young adults with mental or physical abilities, often allowing them to perform at their highest ability. Educational garden Activities in Science and Nature can open scope for creativity in children such as planning and designing their edible garden compositions and working on arts and crafts projects.

Hydroponics grows Healthier plants by boosting root growth. Teaching how the self irrigation system maintains soil at optimum humidity levels and how nutrients are absorbed can be studied in Biology or Botany. All sorts of plants including root vegetables can be grown. Thirsty plants are well suited to the GCG, roots often finding there way into the water reservoir and growing to enormous sizes. The self watering system provides the optimum amount of soil humidity at root level reducing water usage. Teaching how you can plant 4X the amount of crops in the same space as traditional ground soil. Some crops can grow 2X faster getting the optimum amount of water, nutrients and oxygen. GCG learning gardens can be used indoors or outdoors great for learning and discovering gardening education on rainy days! See the Harvest Hydroponics offers
