Hardin Park School Gardens
About the Garden
Mrs. Wilson received a 2015 High Country Local First Farm to School Grant enabling her to bring learning to life for her sixth graders and their "Science Pals." Parker Grissom currently serves as the school garden lead at Hardin Park.
The 6th grade science garden features five raised beds that grow a variety of produce depending on the time of year. In spring, the beds are overflowing with lettuce and other greens. In the summer, tomatoes, peppers, squash, and cabbage are typically found growing. In the fall, students plant garlic and greens to tend until spring. The greenhouse is used to grow vegetable starts in late winter/early spring for spring planting. Science experiments are conducted to test if fall brassicas and other cold hardy crops do better planted by seed or by transplanting and also the difference between being grown inside the greenhouse vs. outside.
