This garden was created by so many people’s love, dedication, and hard work. Students, teachers, community members, and families, all helped create this lush garden. We started with the vision of a dynamic school garden that inspires community building, sustainability, and appreciation for the natural world. Now we really have sown the seeds of a great community resource. Thanks again for everyone’s help!
Here’s the garden in August of 2008!
August 2008- Orca Garden under construction
Here it is in June 2009. We’ve come a long way, yes we have.
What an incredible sight- students designing green buildings that have less of a negative impact on the environment. Teacher Matt Carter facilitated this project, but it was student lead and ran. Many classrooms came by to visit and get some inspiration from these future green engineers!
I think we all can agree that Seattle Tilth is one of the coolest organizations in seattle. They give classes on gardening and also host incredible field trips to their children’s garden. Maidi & Stacy’s class visited the Tilth garden and had a blast! they learned more about worms, mulching, and exciting plants that can be smelled, eaten, and felt!
This is the first in a series of videos that will introduce the world to how we are promoting sustainability at Orca K-8 School.
