School Gardens

At all grade levels, schools are using the school gardens as outdoor classrooms where students learn a variety of subjects–science, math, art, cooking, and language arts.

Many schools already have school gardens, and the Wellness Policy calls for expanding the garden education program within the district. The Wellness Policy references the OUSD Vegetation Policy that has guidelines for the gardens including rules about what can be planted, how garden pests and waste are to be managed, etc.
