Fox Farm

  • A volunteer-run gardening program, weekly lessons focus on getting students interested and active in food production. Students are encouraged to harvest and taste the ‘fruit’ of their labors; from growing mushrooms and sprouts to making salsa and salads.

    Themes guide the lessons; Native American Heritage Month or Earth Month, focus is placed on seasonal and native garden knowledge. Garden planters focus on varying learning styles, from a hands-on planter to encourage digging, to a sensory garden to help students who are in need of alternative approaches to gardens.

    Collaborations between HSD schools creates greater engagement for students, and a year-end Garden Party allows students to showcase and celebrate their work.

This Months' Lesson

  • June Curriculum

    June is a month of celebration. Lessons are done and students are encouraged to visit Fox Farm and enjoy their work. 

    Pollinators blooming, herbs flowering, and the first strawberries are all possible because of the effort of our Free Orchards Students.

    The last week of school, resources will be sent home with students for accessing gardens in the community, as well as information on the Summer Garden Club.

    Thanks for a great year!
