Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) Board Development


Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS)

Board Development & Planning

The Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) is a specialized, inquiry-based education organization that utilizes an organic garden as the foundation for experiential based learning opportunities.

Shift Strategies assisted with the board development, visioning, strategic planning and establishing a documented operating structure as the organization hired its first paid executive director. Over the course of five years, the strategic plan was updated annually, long term direction was established and a capital campaign initiated with our guidance. The program eventually realized its long-term vision by establishing a partnership with the City of Boise, moving to a new and permanent location and expanding programming. BUGS, now in its fifteenth year of operations, is thriving in the community.

“We worked with Beth and Shift Strategies for several years in the early stages of establishing a board of directors and programming/services for the Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS).  She assisted us with board development, strategic planning and operations.  Beth is a trusted partner whose ability to listen, facilitate and guide were invaluable in helping BUGS lay the foundation for our services, programs and community partnerships.”Deb Holleran / Board Member & former Board President / BUGS
