Our program at Agua Caliente Elementary School (ACES) is brand new, as of 2017. Although the school has had a garden for nearly a decade, it has not been highly cultivated. Under a new wellness coordinator and thanks to several grants, ACES is determined to establish a central school garden. The school's mission is a primary focus on health and wellness, with the garden playing a central role in education, socialization and inspiration.

ACES serves elementary school students from diverse ethnic and educational backgrounds in an all-inclusive hands-on education system.

HES Garden Grow

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.
