What is coming

2023/2024 has some BIG goals for our amazing outdoor learning spaces

2022/ 2023:  Amazing work completed thanks to our monthly garden morning volunteers!

Our Story

During the 2021/ 2022 school year, our Parent and community volunteers resurrected the school Food Garden after a year of distance learning to welcome students back into the teaching space.  

We also created a new and exciting outdoor learning space for students with Native Pollinator Habitat Garden!  Thanks to a generous grant from Federal Department of Fish and Wildlife and facilitated by the Sonoma County School Garden Network , we converted 4000+ sq feet of dirt and weeds to a new usable space.  Volunteers sheet mulched the space, did an initial Spring 2022 planting and irrigation and installed new bike path connecting to our student bike rack.  

And since we love our teacher and staff, we gifted them a new outdoor eating area so they could enjoy their lunch in a quiet and safe space.

Student Participation

Many of the Proctor Terrace classes have a weekly opportunity to participate in garden time, weather permitting. With more classroom volunteers, we can support more visits.  

The students at Proctor Terrace are an integral part of the success of the garden:

…and harvesting crops and setting up for Farm Stand sales

Ask your Proctor student what they have been doing in the garden!

Rainy Days?  We can still integrate the Garden!
