About the Program: 

The Arrowhead Nature Zone is a 3.5 acre land lab behind our school. Established in 1998 with the building of our greenhouse, we have expanded over the years and now have 2 ponds, a wetland, a chicken coop, berry bushes, 8 themed gardens and 16 classroom vegetable gardens. All of our students visit the Nature Zone regularly; they participate in weekly or bi-weekly greenhouse classes, plant and harvest their classroom gardens and care for our chickens. Last year we began a Farmers Market tasting program, which gives students the opportunity to try new flavors and healthy foods in an environment where their minds are open to discovery.
