About the Program
This is an opportunity to let students be involved in the planning and creation of a sustainable organic garden as an outdoor classroom at the school. Students will be mapping, studying, designing and creating an edible, native plant organic garden on their school grounds. We will looking at composting, a no-dig permaculture garden, mapping and design (creating the garden layout) and growing the plants to go in the outdoor classroom.
