GABIE Adventures

The GABIE Adventures franchise is committed to introducing school-age children, K-8, to local agriculture and the knowledge of how to use it in their daily lives for sustenance. The GABIE franchisee travels to local schools in a very robust territory with a retrofitted, previously-owned yellow school bus. This bus serves as a mobile classroom with structured lessons and interactive stations that focus on teaching children how to become self-sustaining by developing an interest in planting their own food at home or in community gardens.
