Watch Us Grow

Our beautiful school garden is dedicated to encouraging a love of nature, nutrition, and greenery in our students. Our garden consists of four raised beds, an entry way, and potted plants throughout. The archway is draped with Dutchman’s pipevine (Aristolochia gigantea hybrid). Bed one is our butterfly garden, filled with milkweed, rue, and citrus along with great flowers for pollinators to enjoy! Bed two is our native garden, filled with California poppy, Mexican Hat flower, succulents, and drought-tolerant ground coverings. Bed three is filled with veggies, such as tomatoes, celery, peppers, eggplant, and radishes. Bed four is our herb garden, with parsley, basil, oregano, mint, and much more. The back wall of our garden has a lush grapevine and two passion vines. The passion vines are also a butterfly favorite!
