Creekside Garden Outdoor Learning Space
Kirsten Korff/Kelly Parachek
We would like to create a space outside of the kitchen classroom - in our garden area for students to gather for kitchen/garden lessons and have a designated space for outdoor classroom activities.
We would like to provide an outdoor learning space for all Creekside students. We will level and fill in a 225 sq. ft. area with pea gravel. This area will house 3 commercial grade picnic tables for an outdoor gathering and workspace.
Providing an outdoor learning environment for students leads to increased focus, motivation, and engagement. This will enhance all programs here at Creekside and provide a space for students and entire classrooms to experience the gardens here at Creekside.
