With seven garden beds, a circular seating area, two picnic tables, a garden shed, composters, irrigation and white boards, our Outdoor Classroom and Garden (located next to the District Office, behind the covered play area) is a bountiful outdoor education area used by the whole school for studies in a variety of core subjects. Students come to plant, explore, learn and touch in myriad lessons taking place throughout the garden cycles.

RGS Garden Needs Tools!

Posted by & filed under >GS News, Garden Education.

While our garden has grown over the years, the tool supply has sadly shrunk! We have so many students eager to be in the garden doing hard work this year, and not enough tools for them.  We are hoping some parents or community members have some lying around or are willing to purchase some tools to donate to us. Particular needs are: rakes, shovels, rakes, hand clipper, and loppers.  Please visit the RGS Garden Wish List to see the complete list of needs and help with a gift.

Email Michelle Greissinger with any questions.
