Garden Enrichment

What is the story behind our Lee Gardens and Chicken Coop?

Lee School Garden, Lee Raised-Bed Student Garden, Lee Wildflower Garden, Lee Youth Garden, Lee Chicken Coop, and Lee Rainwater Collection System started by many parents, students, families, teachers, and community members many years ago with the vision to transform under-utilized areas into innovative education tools for our students and teachers.

Why be an advocate for our Lee gardens?

By supporting and utilizing our gardens, students at Lee Elementary School obtain an appreciation for food origins, nutrition, and cultivation. They also receive knowledge of plant cycles and classification, and an understanding of ecosystems in real time. At the same time, they continue to build and expand important life skills in positive social and emotional learning, horticulture, sustainability, environmental knowledge and awareness, patience and responsibility, community, and human to earth connections.
