Sustainability

Back to "Our Outdoor Classes"

Kids Gardening

Sustainability is the practice of taking from the earth only what we need and what is renewable. The goal is to leave future generations no less than we have access to ourselves. Students will begin to gain a sense of place, sense of time, cycles of growth and decomposition, soil ecology, conservation and sustainable patterns of living. Activities may include exploring and working in the garden, plant biology, studying worms in a composting bin, and discuss ecological footprints.
