What's Included

This class will give students the opportunity to learn about growing organic food in our community at the District 28 Garden and Outdoor Classroom! Students will have hands-on experiences harvesting, maintaining, and problem-solving in the garden. We will investigate topics like soil types in our area, when vegetables are best planted and harvested, and the role local farmers markets play in sustaining the economy and the environment. Students will also work together to host an on-site farmer's market with vegetables from the garden and crafts that the kids make during class. Students will walk away with a new appreciation for food, farming, and our planet. All classes will be held at the garden, weather permitting.
