The mission of the Granby Elementary School Garden is to build an outdoor classroom, productive food and habitat gardens for pre-kindergarten to high school. We envision the garden as an interactive classroom that fosters an environment for engaged and project based learning spanning across all academic subjects and offering a free, fresh, and healthy food option for every student, every day. Integrating a garden into course curriculum will support content standards and Common Core State standards, enhance student interest, encourage good student behavior, and transform the health and values of the children at Granby. At the same time, an outdoor garden will help students achieve life skills, such as communication, personal and community stewardship, flexibility, and perseverance.
