School Garden

Garden Committee Goals

  1. Children will begin to understand where their food comes from and be a part of the physical process of growing and harvesting food.
  2. Children will gain a sense of the life cycle of plants and insects and the interconnectedness of all organisms.
  3. Spending time in the garden will allow children to develop a strong connection to the natural world, and a future interest in protecting it.

Community Garden

This garden space which was created with the help of alumnus Margaret Smith is located on the front lawn of the school. The primary focus of this area is vegetables (many of which are utilized in the school kitchen) as well as flowers.

Corner Garden

This space which is located adjacent to the school building was the former site of our vegetable garden and is currently being revitalized as a perennial garden and sitting area.
