Garden Science

Description: Edison’s organic garden is a hands-on place to apply lessons and have real-life experiences that get kids excited about learning.  Visits to the garden teach absorbing lessons about observation and investigation, life cycles, problem-solving, recycling and teamwork.  Students visit the garden for a new lesson each month, with topics as varied as chickens, intercropping, soil ph level and weather measurements.  Along the way, they plant crops, pull and compost weeds, amend soil, harvest crops and eat and share vegetables and herbs they’ve grown themselves. 

 

For 2021-2022, we will initially be focusing on the following areas:

     - Lunch/Recess volunteers to help open the garden during recess time and let the children explore and work on the garden

   

     - Help us hire a new garden instructor! We'll be looking to hire an instructor to start in January 2022.

 

     - Volunteer to help with monthly lessons with your child's class.  For the fall, this will depend a bit on # of volunteers. In the winter, we'll be looking for folks to help out the garden instructor

 

     - Come join one of our monthly garden clean-ups. We take care of a lot of the things that aren't great for the kids to do and make the garden a great place for all of our children!
