The DECS Learning Garden gives each of our students hands-on experience in our agricultural community, while allowing teachers the opportunity to teach curriculum standards outside the four walls of the classroom.
Students learn responsibility through tasks such as planting, watering, weeding and harvesting their garden.
Students engage directly with the life-cycle of plants, and their affect on the environment around them.
Students gain valuable knowledge of the farm-to-table lifestyle of the Delta.
Students explore the unique setting of the garden, studying the riparian waterways and identifying the ecology of Clarksburg.
If you’d like to help in our garden, please let us know.
