Our vision is that the King Learning Garden provides a source of local food for our school community and offers a connection to the earth that inspires new ways to think, learn, and live.
The King Learning Garden
- acts as a sustainable model for local food production that includes ecological knowledge, cooperative school culture, and an immersion in hands-on learning through garden-based educational concepts.
- provides positive health benefits to our students through school garden programs that promote physical activity, healthy eating habits, and expanded access to fresh, local, and organically grown food.
- supports increased learner engagement through students’ cognitive, social, and emotional needs of experiential, interdisciplinary, and cross-cultural learning.
- strives to be self- sufficient in every way – from financially to its utilization of resources – using methods that are currently recognized as best practices in organic and sustainable growing which preserve and respect the natural environment.
- encourages improvement with every growing season while also increasing the opportunity for enrichment to the entire King community.
- is designed to represent a cultural and practical shift in priorities towards the earth by engaging students to utilize the garden during and outside of the school day.
