We are lucky to have a beautiful 1600 square foot garden at Monroe that includes fruit trees, vegetable patches, herbs and native plants. The garden and outdoor classroom are maintained by Education Outside, students, parents, teachers and volunteers and is funded by the Monroe PTA and grants.
Our gardens are thriving at Monroe Elementary School and many hands are needed! Volunteers work alongside students to help maintain the gardens, and can also help teachers turn the experience into valuable lessons in science, nutrition and environmental education. See our volunteer page for details on how you can help, or visit our calendar of events for gardening days.
