Building out a common use space in the midst of the busy, day to day concrete jungle, provides not only a teaching opportunity for us, but also is a safe space for children and parents to come and bond while digging in the soil. Community gardens are a perfect for creating a sense of community.
We partner with local farms to engage students in experiential learning about nature and green spaces. We are grateful to Permaclub and Growing Smart for welcoming us into their beautiful spaces.
