School Garden Program
NACOapple
Teach your kids how to conserve natural resources and help the environment by starting a garden at school. The County will help! The School Garden Program provides an opportunity for students and teachers to work together, grow their own food, exercise, and eat healthy. This instills pride in themselves, the community, and environment. The garden becomes an outside classroom where skills in math, science, art, health, and social studies come together for a fun learning experience.

The County provides at no cost:

     ♠ Raised beds
     ♠ Starter Plants
     ♠ Garden Tools
     ♠ Backyard Compost Bin
     ♠ Worm Composting Bin (includes worms and demonstration)

For a free consultation, email our office. Here is a brochure.
