School Garden

The school garden was started in 2011 and has changed over time.  Its present location is near the bike rack outside of X-care and the PreK rooms. There is a grapevine surrounding the garbage bin area and a number of containers that house the "power pollinator" areas. Students work in groups to maintain a rotation of "roots, shoots, fruits, 3-sisters (sometimes known as brothers) and legumes" each year. They plan and choose the seeds based on rotation practices to ensure the good quality of the soil for future years. In the summer, families come to water and harvest produce.
