Community Garden Nurtures Minds and Fosters Adventure in Education
Posted 04/28/2019 10:00AM


The St. Paul's Community Garden is a space for students from across campus to adventure every day. Conceived in the fall of 2015, faculty, staff, and students worked together to transform the garden into a space that nurtures bodies and minds and foster educational opportunities for students in all divisions.

"Children learn by touching, feeling, and experiencing. The Community Garden is a place where that and so much more is happening," said Nancy Dimitriades, Lower School Science Teacher.

The Community Garden includes a greenhouse, native and non-native animals and plants, a chicken coup, garden beds, a composting area, and a pond with outdoor learning space. "The space will enhance our integrated curriculum, provide summer activities, welcome admissions tours, and further the Green Committee's goals," said Susan Kearney, Assistant Head for Academics and Innovation.

Lower School students plant, tend, and harvest the garden. Students from all divisions across campus use the garden for academic and service opportunities.

"And it's not just about science," said Dimitriades. Students engage with the garden during art units, story walks, nutrition units, journal writing, modern language vocabulary, and more.

The garden will also be a location for events such as potato, tomato, strawberry and blueberry picking days, where students are invited to hear a story, share a recipe, and pick produce.

Harvest from the garden is donated to Manna House, a nonprofit organization that offers assistance and support to the homeless, poor, and needy of Baltimore. Lower School students donate monthly to the Manna House Lunches for the Hungry program.

"The garden is a wonderful example of the School's Annual Fund dollars at work, and we are grateful for alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends who give to the Annual Fund and help make projects like the Community Garden possible," said Alden Reith, Director of the Annual Fund and Parent Relations.
