The Jeffco Open School garden opens a door to the living world,
allowing students to learn about nature and nutrition, and serves as
an outdoor classroom for experiential learning.

All levels of our preK-12 community use the garden as a backdrop and inspiration for a variety of lessons and activities, incorporating the garden and the insects it provides into the classroom. In late winter, students start seeds in grow tables and then in the spring, they transplant the seedlings into the garden.
