Program Application Steps

Step 1

Complete our online registration form here

Payment is due at time of registration to secure your child’s spot in our program. Payment options include:

  • Mail check (make payable to Giving Gardens of Indiana) to: 479 S. Towerview Dr. Columbia City, IN 46725

  • Online payment via Paypal here
Step 2

After submitting your application you will receive a registration confirmation email within 48 hrs. A family meet is required so we can get to know you and your child before school starts. 

A meet and greet is scheduled for March 11th, 2021 from 6-7pm at Giving Gardens of Indiana.

If you cannot attend the meet and greet, a family interview will be done via zoom. A director will contact you to set up a 15 minute zoom interview sometime from March 8th-11th, 2021.

Step 3

You will receive an orientation email prior to the start date of your child’s program containing important information such as driving and drop-off directions, gear lists, school calendar, parent handbook, and other paperwork. Most of this information can be found through our parent page and FAQ, but please contact us if you have any pressing questions. We also will be using an App called Remind. This is a free app that we will use to communicate through with parents and teachers about any changes in class, location or other pertinent information. An invite for Farm & Forest School will be sent in the orientation email for the Remind app class. Please download this app and make sure notifications are turned on.

Step 4

Get excited! We look forward to seeing you and your student on the first day of program.
