The Corner Garden

The Corner Garden is a special addition to our Elementary Curriculum.  We have 3 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.
