Outdoor Classroom Community Garden

Our outdoor classroom is designed to be a place where all students and teachers can come to experience the wonders of plants, the budding “edible forest”, the new pond and authentic learning opportunities in reading, writing, and responding to nature.

We hope to create an outdoor classroom where students can engage in the planning, growing, maintaining and harvesting of a school garden. This will be a wonderful learning experience for students, creating a healthy and prosperous garden with a variety of plants that will be used to generate service learning projects for students. Moving forward, as we recruit parent volunteers our intention is a holistic one that will engage the entire family. Our goal is to also encourage healthy eating habits as well as help sustain the garden through a growers market.
