Life Lab at the Garden
Life Lab serves Jr. K-5th grade students. “Life Lab Science is a core curriculum which integrates earth, life, and physical science concepts within the context of a Living Laboratory school garden.” The lessons promote science, gardening, language arts, math, art, social studies, environmental awareness, plant identification, team building skills, creativity, problem solving, and sense of place in relationship to ones environment. Students learn various components of organic gardening from composting to seed germination, water cycles, food systems, life cycles, etc. The garden provides a place for learning, unique “teaching opportunities”, space for kids to have fun and get dirty, and to make new discoveries.

COMPOST & RECYCLING

Our beautiful compost bin is getting a much needed update with 1/2 hardware cloth. We have covered the back but still need to dig out the bins and line the bottom. As soon as we are done with that, we can start composting full force!
