The Herndon Elementary School (HES) Garden program was started in 2015 by a parent with a desire to get the students outside and have them get their hands dirty. In the 2016-17 school year, the garden program expanded to include not only time outside planting, but complimentary classroom curriculum as well. In the current 2017-18 school year, our students are studying subjects such as compost, weather, honeybees, square foot gardening, ecosystems and more. Additionally, we have students writing about the garden as part of their language arts curriculum. Their blog posts can be seen at: https://hesgarden.wordpress.com.
