The mission of the TMA Garden Project is to provide a living outdoor classroom where students can apply math, science and nutrition skills learned in traditional classes to improve subject matter understanding. The project includes several different programs that are managed by 15 parent volunteers.
The TMA garden is a living, growing outdoor classroom. Each class visits the garden with parent volunteers for hands-on lessons in various areas such as horticulture, earth science, ecology, and more. Students grow and harvest seasonal produce and learn about the connection between what they eat and where it comes from. Experiences in the garden give them a better understanding of how the natural world sustains us and promotes nutritional and environmental consciousness.
Please stop by anytime for a self-guided garden tour. You are invited to look at the monthly garden calendar (on our blog found below) and lend a hand with your child’s class on their scheduled garden days. In addition, visit our biweekly produce stand held every other Tuesday on the Star Terrace at 2:15 PM.
