The garden is an ecosystem for investigation and a laboratory for experimentation. Through a partnership with Education Outside, weekly, standards-based lessons invite students to learn sustainable gardening techniques through the eyes of a scientist. We learn about water conservation through tending to plants, decomposition through making compost, and ecosystem interactions through sustainable pest management. Hands-on activities encourage students to care for the garden and the environment, all while growing food for the school to enjoy.
