Middle School’s GIVE Garden flourishing with student help

Students posing at MS garden

Marika Tierney’s Developmental Skills Grade 6-8 classroom has had a busy spring!

They have incorporated all aspects of the garden into their science curriculum, starting with the germination process in the classroom, monitoring their progress and transplanting them in the garden.  The school garden is an essential component of a vibrant healthy and sustainable community.  It is a place to educate the students about fresh local food produce and the wonders of our beautiful natural environment.

The students will sell the harvest in the fall to the staff and faculty at the Middle School and District Office, learning about supply and demand, money skills, and interpersonal relationships.  By introducing this experience in a hands-on environment, we hope to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of working together, hard work, and nature’s impact on our community.

Room 105 would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to Mr. Keating, Mr. Hadcock, Mrs. Tunison, Mrs. Denney, Mrs. Adkins, Mr. Lovett, Mr. Froehlich and Mr. Cosmer who have helped and/or donated items to make sure our garden grows!

If you would like to donate to the Middle School GIVE Garden, bring your returnable bottles and cans to the Creating Change Redemption Center in Glenville and donate your proceeds to SG MIDDLE SCHOOL GIVE PROGRAM.

Here are a few pictures from the program:
