The Garden Program

The NDE garden program is a collaborative effort of parent volunteers, school staff, district maintenance support, and financial support from the NDE PTA and Davis Farm to School. Parent volunteers coordinate garden class schedules, provide supplies, help maintain garden areas, and volunteer as classroom “garden parents” to lead groups of students in activities such as planting, harvesting, scarecrow-making and cooking. Suggested lesson plans are made available to classes interested in gardening, although teachers are also free to devise their own lesson plans.
