“This is our third year with the school garden,” said seventh-grade teacher Wendy Smith. “The PTA originally started it, building the garden and funding the garden...we have a class of seventh-graders that work on the garden each year, but every grade level, from kindergarten to seventh grade, has garden beds out here that they grow things in and tend themselves.”
The vegetables grown in the garden are used in the school’s cafeteria, and kindergarteners grow strawberries and lettuce to eat right at school.
Among other activities the PTA and seventh-graders utilized to educate younger children at the Earth Day celebration were games, face painting, garden stone painting and writing a wish on a seed and planting it.
