South Lane School District has been actively working in all K-12 schools to provide experiential learning for students. Connecting students with the natural world around them through gardens, food and farms is the mission of the Farm to School & School Garden program.
We have recently received a Farm to School & School Garden grant from the Oregon Department of Education. In 2018 and 2019 schools around the district will be benefiting from these new funds! Recess Garden Clubs, Berry & Orchard establishment at Kennedy School and more!
NOW AVAILABLE: Bohemia and Cottage Grove High School have raised beds for rent their Community Gardens space! The beds rent for $15 each for the entire growing season starting in March 2018. Organic compost and irrigation water are provided. Gardening times are after school or whenever school is not in session.
