• Learning Garden

    Spring Avenue is proud to present our very first school learning garden! Over the past year, our School Learning Garden has been offering various opportunities for students to get their hands dirty and discover the many components that create a beautiful, healthy living garden. Using a hands-on approach, Spring Avenue's learning garden helps foster a deeper appreciation and experience for learning.

  • Green Club 2012

    Introducing Spring Avenue's Green Club! We're definitley having a blast getting our hands dirty! This past Monday, the kids continued to clean up the garden by composting, planting bulbs, harvesting broccoli, raking, and more.

    Together the first and sixth grade students recently harvested three bags of arugula, lettuce, and spinach from our school garden. What a successful season! To share in this great harvest, the produce will be donated to the local food pantry for the needy. This is such a wonderful opportunity for the students to reap what they sow and share it with the local community!
