We make sure our teachers and students have access to our Learning Garden and Native Plant areas for environmental education. There, students can learn about life cycles of plants and animals, native plants, which plants are edible (and taste them), food chains, water cycles, and soil composition.
Our students' time in the garden reinforces the K-6 science curriculum and aligns with California State Science Standards.
In addition, our Green Lunchroom Initiative involves children directly as they learn about waste sorting, waste reduction and get a real-world example of sustainability in their community.
