lgarden.jpg (106491 bytes)Elmont Elementary has a series of small classroom gardens known collectively as The Learning Garden. Teachers utilize elements of the GroLab and LifeLab curriculums to teach Virginia Standards of Learning objectives in a hands-on-fashion. The Learning Garden consists of individual classroom gardens, a colonial herb garden, a wildlife habitat and nature trail as well as a program of school-wide cafeteria composting.

We are always looking for schools interested in beginning school gardens or sharing ideas from their existing school gardens. Please contact Ms. Marchetti, Email for more information.
