You can grow your own food. We can help.

St. Andrew's Country Day School Family & Community Garden Club

Our school garden club involves families of students and community members from the surrounding neighborhood working together to establish a vegetable and fruit garden that will be used to both feed recipients of our local food pantry as well as introduce students to eating more nutritious food, and learning to grow it. In 2014, we will initiate the garden, making raised beds to grow vegetables, plant our garden, care for it, and distribute the produce to the local food pantry, which is adjacent to the school. Students will learn the nutrition value of the food, and make connections to the science, health, mathematics and physical education standards that take place in growing a garden. They will write about the garden, draw pictures and take photos. They will work collaboratively as a community dedicated to a cause. The garden club will be a true cross curricular experience.
