Our Garden is certified as a Wildlife Habitat. When children are interested in nature; they learn about protecting habitats and become engaged with their environment. Being outside in an area that provides food, water, and cover for wildlife, gives them the chance to observe frogs, fish, rabbits, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and the occasional visit from our Mr.Cottontail.
We teach the virtues of vermicomposting. Red wriggler worms easily hold the attention of these students.
Kids that visit our gardens like to take home something they can grow. The Grace Academy kids learned about seeds and planted them in “Root Viewers”, made out of recycled rinsed out milk cartons with a plastic window made of tape.
