The Learning Tree: Rooted in the Arts

 The Learning Tree is a private alternative school   founded by Sharon Tiner, teacher and visionary. To date it has operated as a summer school with components of Art in the Garden, Art in the Kitchen and Art in the curriculum.  Staff of the Learning Tree visited the Edible Garden in 2010 and find the intentions and goals to be complementary.   We would be interested in being a possible model site in the greater Sacramento area.

The facility has been established and is being groomed to serve upper elementary students who want to learn in a creative and loving environment.
