Garden Program Director
Diana Kyle, a former Science Teacher in the public school system and former Director of Parks, finds joy in engaging with youth through non-traditional methods. Ms. Kyle strongly believes in making learning enjoyable by incorporating numerous hands-on garden and healthy food preparation activities. This approach allows students to absorb and retain knowledge at a rate three times higher than conventional teaching methods. Throughout her career, Ms. Kyle has curated an extensive collection of over 150 "magic boxes," each brimming with exciting interactive activities. She employs these boxes to expose participants to exceptional experiences, fostering a sense of exploration and discovery. Her philosophy centers around the idea that when children discover their passions, they can shape their own futures positively. By effectively utilizing their classrooms, they have the potential to turn their dreams into reality, thereby contributing to a better, greener world for the planet.
