General Garden Info: Our Gardening Club meets after school and is maintained through the summer.  Our garden was successful at a beginning level. Our growing season is quite short. The indoor Woolly School Garden will allow for us to have a longer growing season and grow less hearty things because they will be protected from wind and cold.  Our garden has provided food to “Share the Bounty” in our community, has provided food for families at our school and snacks for our classrooms.

Our Gardening Goal: The mission of Linford’s Garden Club is: To provide our students with authentic learning experiences in a natural and supportive setting. Students will contribute to their community and development of self-efficacy through their participation in the Linford Garden Club. Our goal is to have the Woolly School Garden serve as our hands-on indoor classroom and to give our students the opportunity to grow food for themselves and their families regardless of our short growing season.
