Growing Great

Growing Great (Funded by PTA)



During Harvest-of-the-Month tasting, a seasonal fresh fruit or vegetable is sampled in the cafeteria during lunch. Displays illustrate the farm to table cycle with samples of live plants, seeds, different varieties of produce being sampled and nutrition facts. Our Growing Great Garden provides a great learning environment in which students can grow, harvest, eat and sell their own food from the garden located on campus. Students experience new foods in their organic school gardens while learning about seasonality, life cycles, and sustainable food production.
