AnnanThe Froebel School

All classes have their own froebelian growing beds which allows children to be involved in all stages of the growing process from planting to cooking.

Outdoor education is a priority at Annan school, our grounds include a pond, orchard, wild area and is surrounded by woods where children go each week to forest school.

These spaces are an integral part of the everyday life of the school and provide places where children can work and play and develop a deep appreciation of the natural world.

Valor Academy Elementary School

I work for an amazing charter school called Valor Academy. We are a new school only being in our 2nd year of operation, and this is the very first year of our garden program. We have 5 raised key hole garden beds and a few other raised beds scattered throughout our campus. Our campus primarily services Latino students in a majority of economically under served areas. Our campus currently serves TK-2nd grade and will be adding a new grade every year as we grow. I currently teach gardening and cooking and would love to create a bridge between the two.
