Gardening has been an important part of experiential learning at ASF and it has been promoted this semester through the training of Lower School and Upper School teachers by Ecología con Amor (NGO) and their enthusiastic involvement of teachers with their students to make compost, prepare the gardens, plant, and care for more than 600 plants distributed in 21 school gardens, a garden atop the green roof on the FAC and the pollinator's garden.
Corn, beans, squash, tomatoes, cabbage, peas, basil, onions, and radishes are among the plants being cared for and which students expect to harvest before school ends. These gardens are also sharing their space with insect hotels made by students during Earth Week. Come to visit and admire them at ASF!
