Have Fun Making Our School More Beautiful

It’s easy. Just sign up for a garden and, if you want, get friends, family, a class, or a group of students together to design a garden from scratch, add plants to an existing garden, or maintain an existing garden. There is no minimum amount of work required, though we hope people will commit to a school year. You may do as little or as much as you like.

Organic Vegetable Garden

You may want to help with our new Organic Veggie Garden and help get the kids involved!  In past years, we were able to donate spinach, lettuce and cilantro to the Capital Area Food Bank.

Composting Program

We are proud of our composting program!  Children in the cafeteria put ALL organic material into specially-marked buckets.  The only things that cannot be composted are metals, glasses, plastics, and Styrofoam.  Custodial staff monitor and empty the buckets into carts near the dumpster, plus collect their organics in the kitchen. 

Think for just a moment about how much waste will be diverted from our city’s landfill in a whole school year.
