Savanna Oaks is proud to add a garden to its landscape. Our mission has three parts. First we want to provide our students with hands on learning experiences. Through our science classes we hope to connect our students to the outdoors in an outdoor classroom. They will experience authentic learning. They will be able to experiment, explore, and experience real life science in a way that will be engaging and memorable. Our second mission is to give our students the chance to experience where food comes from. The students will have the chance to grow, plant, and harvest good and healthy foods grown right on our own campus. Our third mission is to give the students a sense of community, working side by side with other teachers and students for a common goal. We hope to involve our students in giving to the local food banks and community centers. We hope that you too will consider getting involved. Please click on the links below to find out more!
The Savanna Oaks Garden Club is looking for volunteers to
Adopt the Garden
We are looking for families who would be interested in adopting the garden for one week over the summer.
This is an opportunity to use your green thumb and take home garden fresh vegetables!
During your one week you can set your own hours to complete general care in the garden. This would include things like: watering, weeding, staking plants, and harvesting.
You can take home any vegetables you harvest for use with your family.
Thinking about gardening but don’t know where to begin?
Want a garden but don’t have the space?
This is a great opportunity to try out your green thumb.
No experience necessary!
Sign up with a friend or another family and make it a night out.
