Charlotte Country Day Lower School Garden

Our garden is an outdoor learning environment for the students in the Lower School.  The students plant, care for, and harvest vegetables throughout the year during science class.  Half of our harvest goes to our cafeteria and the other half goes to Friendship Gardens.
