The ISD Garden Project is Growing

October 6, 2017--We are pleased to announce the garden activities for the first quarter of 2017-2018 have started!

A garden consultant is on campus 12 hours a week as a resource of information and also to assist faculty and students interested in using the garden space to support and diversify their lessons and classes.  It can be used as a live outdoor classroom to enhance many areas of learning about our natural world. Curricular connections are limitless: life sciences, measurement, geometry, social studies, history, art and design can all be experienced first hand in the garden.
