Garden Team


Promote a healthy lifestyle!

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.


The fall garden club is in full swing, but you can come by to check it out on Thursdays after school (garden or Mrs. Greenlaw’s classroom if weather is bad).
