Garden Biodiversity

During the fall and spring students have the opportunity to participate in the ongoing creation and maintenance of the garden. An excellent springboard for topics such as Biodiversity and Sustainability, the garden is a place where every sense is stimulated. Depending on the season, students may plant or collect seeds, amend soil, weed, harvest, water, or create new beds. A naturally exciting physical environment, all students enjoy plunging their hands into the soil to discover its secrets.
