Garden Program

This year, students at Northside School will do fun and educational activities in the garden. School gardens offer hands-on educational experiences not only in gardening, but in a wide variety of subjects. The students plant, harvest, and maintain the garden. They learn about pollinators, worm composting, life cycles, insects, photosynthesis, soil ecosystems, and decomposition. They also use math, science, and language arts as they work in the garden.

Students will be harvesting fresh vegetables for the cafeteria and contributing vegetables for our yearly harvest feast.  We will also continue to add plants to our butterfly garden located behind the office.
