Sunset Sudbury School Organic Community Garden
The garden will be divided into several sections. Fruit trees and larger plants will be planted in the school patio. smaller trees and fruits will be plated in planters and other bushes will be in the back of the school property. The various plants will include lettuce, tomatoes, kale, cucumber, basil, arugula, corn, cabbage and carrots. These fruits and vegetables will generate fresh healthy snacks for the children.
Our garden project is unique in that our students have requested the garden. We are a democratic sudbury school where our students have intellectual autonomy and have been inspired and are passionate about starting a garden. Because they have chosen this activity, they are genuinely interested and motivated to pursue this garden to its completion
They will learn hands on what it takes to build, grow and maintain a garden.
Creating a sustainable school garden that the children requested will continue to engage students, teachers and their families in the importance of fresh local food and teach them to be conscious of their efforts as well as the food they eat. This garden will provide “hands on”, holistic and outdoors learning experience. They will learn where food comes from as well as about nutrition and how it affects one’s body. If possible we will use part of harvest to raise funds for the maintenance of the garden in the future.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
