Year Founded: 2006

The Hooker Oak Elementary Open Structured Classroom school garden program has been growing for the last five years, revitalilzing the garden area (with the assistance of community business support), and now students have 2-3 sessions, (sessions lasting 3-4 weeks), in the garden: harvesting, seeding, transplanting as well as tasting and cooking from the school garden harvest.  In addtiion, the garden curriculum has been integrated with both Life Science and Common Core ELA, so students are meeting some of their curriculum standards through their experiences in the school garden.

To maintain the school garden, we have a Green School Committee comprised of parent and staff volunteers, who schedule routine garden maintenance days, and seek grant monies used to maintain and expand the garden, purchase equipment and curriculum, and offer teachers & parents school garden trainings.
