Welcome!

Welcome!

At Mohr, we believe a school garden provides a platform for students to learn through hands on experience, exploration and observation, while fostering their natural desire to be outdoor in nature.
 
The Garden Club meets once a week and is available to all Mohr students during lunchtime. Days vary depending on grade level.
 
Students can participate in a myriad of garden activities and chores including prep of soil, planting, weeding, fertilizing and composting.
 
In addition, the Garden Committee hosts special projects every other week, such as:
 
  • Creating various outdoor artworks using natural materials for the community to enjoy
  • Making stepping stones and garden signs that helped beautify our garden
  • Pressing flowers and making floral soaps
  • Learning about pollination and the role of insects by dissecting flowers, cross-pollinating them and making butterfly origamis
  • Learning about beekeeping and constructing 3D models of mason bee nests
  • Exploring their senses through taste and touch of various herbs, flowers and vegetables
  • Measuring plant growth and observing insects
  • Participating in scavenger hunts to become familiar with what’s growing in our garden
 
There are many opportunities to learn while having fun! Come visit the Garden Club today!
