Feb. 2013 Donations List for Kirtland Elementary's Garden

Friday, March 29, 2013 is the donation deadline for the Eagle's Nest Garden Project at Kirtland Elementary School.The Eagle's Nest Garden Project is an experiential learning program at Kirtland ES in which the school community learns about health, science, math, and language arts through the lens of the school garden. We plant, tend, harvest, and celebrate together around essential curricular concepts both during the school day and in APS after-school programing. We aim to reinforce natural patterns of inquiry, curiosity, and interconnection in our students through regular hands-on experience with the natural world.
