Active Program Need: Classroom Volunteers
Let’s get back INTO THE GARDEN at Hazelwood this year!
Garden Workshops: Beginning Week of September 26th
We want every scholar to get the opportunity to get outside and GROW in that space.
The school garden offers a place for scholars to engage in hands-on, inquiry based, observational and experiential learning experiences. These experiences enrich learning and foster a STEM culture that aligns with science curriculum standards.
School gardens are not just places for plant science and ecology; they are places for art, music, math, critical thinking, and creative writing. Being in the garden you can teach about sharing and teamwork, as learning comes to life while scholars make connections to the world around them. The WSU Master Gardener Teaching Kits make it simple to engage with the scholars in this environment.
While excellent soil and plants may be important factors to the foundation of a garden, dedicated people are the foundation of the garden program. Your garden committee is the sunshine, water, and nutrients that will help make our school garden program shine.
Please consider joining our team and help to enrich the education of our scholars. Without you, our garden can’t blossom!
No gardening experience necessary.
With the support of the PTSA and volunteers, the students are given multiple opportunities to work and observe in the garden during the school year.
During the summer months, several Hazelwood families volunteered their time to care for the garden a week at a time. Thank you to all of you who water, weed, harvest, and compost over the hot and dry summer this year!
Ongoing volunteer opportunities are available to help our students in the garden.
