Edison Elementary Garden Program

Each student at Edison Elementary visits the garden once a month with their class. Lessons are taught by Lorri Garrett and are grade appropriate covering science, nutrition, gardening, and cooking. Simple recipes like salsa, pesto, salad and cheesy chard are made in the garden with the students. 

Real Food SEED (Student Engagement Every Day)

The Real Food SEED (Student Engagement Every Day) project is designed to provide students with authentic learning opportunities connecting them to real food through sensory experiences.  Our programs in the school cafeteria, classroom, school garden, and local farming community engage students in learning about growing food, eating seasonally and mindfully, and preparing and enjoying meals together.  Our goal is to provide all students with the knowledge and skills to make conscious, educated food choices that will nourish them for a lifetime of health.

Silverlake Elementary Garden

In creating this garden we hope to encourage and involve both the teachers and students and in turn the community in taking part to grow their own food. This garden has the oppurtunity to help several hundred children and adults alike learn about healthy eating and taking care of the envirnoment around us. We are excited to see where this can take us!

PEAS began in 2011 as a collective of educators, students, parents & community members operating the school and community organic farm at Cunningham Elementary.  Over time the leadership committee realized the need in the community for school and community garden educational support for garden programs and outdoor learning.

The Soulard School

The Culinary Arts program began as a farm-to-table lunch program that provides students with a framework for learning about the connections between the food we eat, our bodies and our environment.

Seth Boyden Demonstration School - Strawberry Fields Garden

Seth Boyden Demonstration School created a culture around outdoor education that included its school garden, first installed in 2001. The master plan that was made in 1999 continues to be worked on today as there is an outdoor kitchen complete with a working sink, a small garden classroom, a larger outdoor classroom, performance nooks, habitat gardens and an arboretum. Teachers bring their students outdoors to do hands-on science, messy art projects, math, literature and more. Often classes just come out to work, relax and stretch their bodies.

Native American Student and Community Center Living Rooftop Garden and Deerwalk

A red brick pathway zigzags the rooftop of the Native American Student and Community Center (NASCC), traversing through seven beds of native plants. The fully-accessible path passes through cascading terraces of grasses, shrubs and flowers. Species include elderberry, oregon grape, kinnikinnick, salal, sedum, native roses, lupine and reeds. Just southwest of NASCC, native plants with medicinal and cultural uses  cover the I-405 overpass through a partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).

Native Garden at Science Research Teaching Center

This block-long collection of native plants was restored from an ivy patch in the 1990s by students in the Environmental Studies department and Environmental Club. Over the years, this space has grown to showcase a variety of beneficial plants including Oregon Iris, Salal, Spirea, many types of ferns, Showy Milkweed, and Red-Osier Dogwood. Because these plants are adapted to our local climate, the garden rarely needs watering. Stop by to experience nature in the city.
