Welcome to Our Garden

2018 School Garden

Our Garden

Wow, we've grown a great crop of veggies in our 2018 garden! With the spring addition of 4 new skinny beds along the chain link fence for our climbing vegetables like beans, peas, and cucumbers, we now have just over 200-sq.ft. of growing area. It's been great to see the students' excitement as they've watched their seeds grow into healthy plants that can feed their school community. They are so eager to try everything. Who says kids don't like veggies? Click on our Garden to Cafeteria link for more information about our tasting program.

Many thanks to PRIDE Pals and all the students/staff who contributed to the seed planting during Healthy Schools Week, and of course we are indebted to the volunteers who have helped to weed and water all summer long. Below is a list of everything currently growing in our 2018 garden.
