Reading and Sustainability Garden

Project GoalThe goal of this project is to provide a green space on our campus that will help students develop an appreciation for nature and for the importance of conservation and sustainability. Our garden will provide a peaceful environment for activities such as reading, drawing, and small group activities. It will also provide an outdoor "classroom" for students to learn about gardening, plant and animal life, and the values of sustainability and conservation. Students will participate in maintaining the garden through planting and caring for plants. The school's Building and Grounds staff will provide basic ongoing maintenance, and parent volunteers will also be available to provide additional support.
