Our beautiful and productive school garden is a dynamic, interactive and creative teaching/learning opportunity for the kids at Franklin. All of the children have opportunities to plant, care for, harvest and consume the bounty of the garden. In those processes, children have the chance to glean a tremendous amount of knowledge.
Volunteer opportunities abound and there is no need to have a green thumb to help out; only the desire to be involved with something cool. Volunteers are needed mostly in the spring and the fall. We are also looking for “foodies” to help us create tantalizing dishes with our harvest with the kids in the classroom. Even if it is not your thing, check out the garden next to the primary playground. It’s cool!
