Golden Garden

The "Golden Garden" of MLES
Golden Garden

    ~ The "Golden Garden" is an outdoor "classroom" that the teachers and students of MLES use as a resource to learn about a variety of things across a variety of subject areas.
   ~  The "Golden Garden" is a pollinator-friendly habitat which provides ample nectar sources for pollinators such as bees and butterflies.  Additionally, it is a habitat for the endangered Monarch butterflies and their eggs due to the cultivation of milkweed.  We are listed on the "Rosalyn Carter Butterfly Trail Registry".
    ~ The "Golden Garden" is a place where a variety of edible plants grow in order to teach students where their food and fiber comes from.  We strive to show the process of how everything in the environment works together for all living things and to instill the value of taking care of the environment and our bodies through fresh, nutritious food sources.
     ~Through many Grant Programs and local Community Partners, our Garden Program has expanded by adding a Greenhouse so that students can experiment with growing things at ALL times of the year.  We also have a Hydroponic Garden, which is housed inside the Media Center, so that all of our students can see an alternative way of growing plants.
     ****GRANTS and COMMUNITY PARTNERS: GA SHAPE Grant,  Whole Kids Foundation Grant, Master Gardener's Association, Farm Bureau, Turner's Feed and Seed, and the DCSS School Nutrition Service.
