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!
