Reducing Food Waste
We are excited to work with faculty, staff, administrators and the school community to reduce the amount of food scraps that enter our local landfill.
School gardens are a great way to build knowledge of where our food comes from and how it grows while providing hands-on learning opportunities in real-world math, science and communication skills.
After a field trip to Vine and Fig's Urban Farm where students observe and get their hands dirty while practicing permaculture methods, they may take their new skills back to use in their own school garden.
Our Educational Outreach Program works diligently to listen, learn and move towards meaningful relationships in which we find ways to enhance outdoor education. Our goal is to practice and teach environmental stewardship in our community.
