The East Elementary School community began construction for the East Garden in 2011. Our students and families benefit from the beautiful vegetables that are produced. Each year the fifth grade students spend time learning about the various plants that will go into the garden. They start each plant from seed and watch as they grow in their classrooms before transplanting to the garden beds. After each harvest, Mrs. Tryon, our lunch lady, prepares fresh-from-the-garden recipes for all students to try during lunch.
