Adams ‘Magic’ Acres School Garden

Adams “Magic” Acres School Garden was built by parents and students in the spring of 2013. We are a year-round school so try to have a year-round garden!  We also have a butterfly garden adjacent to the vegetable garden. We hope the school garden helps to:
• encourage healthy eating habits by introducing kids to new fruits and vegetables
• connect children to the environment
• provide hands on activities to supplement teachers lesson plans
• and to introduce philanthropy by planting ‘rows for the hungry’ which will benefit our local food bank

Students have the opportunity to work in the garden during designated “Garden Days”, one day each quarter for every track, during each grade’s recess time. We are always looking for WCPSS approved volunteers to help guide students on these days.
