WCSD6 School Gardens
  • District 6 School Garden Program 

    School gardens provide a unique, hands-on learning environment for students, teachers and community members. A school garden is a great resource in curricula ranging from nutrition, science, math, social studies, art and much more. It not only serves as an educational tool, but also breeds social team-building skills and gives students a sense of ownership and empowerment.
