Veggie Garden Renovation

Our Veggie Garden has 10 existing 4 feet x 8 feet raised beds.  We are in the process of realigning the beds to accommodate 4 new beds.  Pavers will be laid between and around each bed to help keep grass out.  We are excited about the new growing space that will be added.  Our friends, Jim Long, and Renee Shepard , , are helping us brew up the magic that will be growing in them soon!.

We have a local artist that is going to work with our students on painting signs that label objects in all three of our outdoor classrooms.  We want to create a vocabulary rich environment for our students.  The gardens provide lots of opportunity for vocabulary development !  We will post pictures soon !
