Students are seen here creating a new Square Foot Garden on our campus.
Square foot gardening is a simple method of creating small, orderly, and highly productive gardens and was invented by Mel Bartholomew as a better way to grow a vegetable garden. It became a huge hit when he introduced the idea to the gardening public in 1981 in his book Square Foot Gardening.
This endeavor is teaching many things including math, science, teamwork, and an understanding of where food comes from. Students will be planting vegetables, herbs, and flowers in these garden beds.
