  • It takes a team of dedicated teachers, administrators, students, and parents to create a sustainable school garden.
  • Use your imagination, and your students' imaginations, when designing your garden space.
  • Every school subject can be taught through the garden.
  • Getting a bit dirty never hurt anyone!

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.  - Gertrude Jekyll
