School gardens around town

Alberta Rider is not unique in having a school garden.  Many other area schools have successfully incorporated gardens into the school grounds and the day to day life of the student body.

One nearby example is at Charles F. Tigard Elementary School.  Students have had plenty of hands on learning at CFT.  They’ve planted potatoes, used recycled materials to start marigolds that were transplanted outside, and have grade specific garden beds!  Way to go CFT!

Neighboring school, Mary Woodward, has also found ways to incorporate the great outdoors into a great education.

Take a look around your school grounds.  Could you find a sunny spot for a few raised beds or garden rows?  Talk to your school administration.  They may be hoping that a dedicated volunteer like you would come along and bring a garden dream to life!
