Why garden? Gardening is a fun and educational opportunity for students to connect with their natural environment on a regular basis. The Garden Committee provides opportunities for hands-on learning with ties to the curriculum for all grades; raises awareness about water consumption, soil quality, and healthy foods; and creates an oasis in a concrete, urban environment.
The Garden Committee meets monthly on Tuesdays from 2:45-3:30 p.m. (check the school calendar to confirm). New student and parent volunteers are always welcome! For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
