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.
