At the Due West Learning Gardens, we believe that learning outdoors should be inspiring, fun, and a little messy.
Teachers, parents, grandparents and community leaders alike have come together to provide students with opportunities for hands-on, project-based learning at Due West Elementary. Whether they are starting plant seedlings or observing wildlife in their natural habitat, every student can grow in their understanding and appreciation of the natural world.
There are several ways to join the fun in the Due West Gardens this year. Volunteers with all levels of gardening experience are welcome!Become an Earth Parent.
