School Gardens

Buildings throughout the district maintain gardens or other natural outdoor settings located on their grounds that promote involvement from students, teachers, parents, and community members. 

These communal spaces outside of the classroom build students’ educational and nutritional proficiency, while also encouraging connection through the community through produce distribution and collaboration opportunities.

27 schools report having a garden or outdoor classroom space, each as unique as the school community it serves. Check out the School Garden Inventory page to see what each school has in their outdoor space.

Schools can also apply for support from Master Gardeners: trained experts that can help schools with planting schedules and other garden education efforts. Sign up here to request a Master Gardener.
