Golden Garden

The Golden Garden of MLES

Golden GardenMISSION:  The "Golden Garden" is an outdoor "classroom" in which the teachers and students of MLES can 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 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.

VISION:  We want to continually add to the "Golden Garden" program by the eventual installation of a Greenhouse for earlier planting in the spring and growing plants in the "off-season".   Additionally, we want to teach students alternative forms of growing through hydroponic gardening.
