Claire’s Montessori International Academy has been working hard on building an ambitious school Edible Garden. The Edible Garden will be situated behind the schoolyard, radiating around an ancient oak tree.
Claire’s Montessori Edible Garden is a great addition to our program. The Primary and Elementary students spend time in the Edible Garden on a weekly basis. We tie in our Edible Garden with our Botany and Practical Life curriculum. The students learn to plant, harvest, and weed plants.
School gardens help encourage students to eat healthier and to try new fruits and vegetables. It also connects the students to the environment, prevents childhood obesity, promotes physical activity, and encourages new ways of learning.
