The Mitchell Ele­men­tary Com­mu­ni­ty Gar­den is a par­ent run, vol­un­tary gar­den found­ed in 2011 through grants and fundrais­ers. The Gar­den is sit­u­at­ed at the south end of the upper play­ground, past the black top and is fenced with 10 ful­ly irri­gat­ed, raised beds uti­liz­ing an organ­ic approach, and a stor­age shed. The fun­da­men­tal goals of the Gar­den are to encour­age a pas­sion for the sci­ence and art of gar­den­ing, pro­mote nutri­tion, and facil­i­tate our children’s under­stand­ing of the envi­ron­ment and how their food is pro­duced. This is accom­plished through numer­ous activ­i­ties and con­tests that revolve around kinder­garten through 5th grade cur­ricu­lum goals.


Are you a bud­ding botanist or an avid agri­cul­tur­ist? Or maybe you just love watch­ing things grow and get­ting your hands dirty!

The Mitchell Gar­den Team is spon­sor­ing this FREE after-school activ­i­ty in fall and spring of each school year. The 6-week class cov­ers care of the Mitchell school gar­den, fun gar­den sci­ence exper­i­ments, and lessons in healthy eat­ing.
