Garden Dreaming: Westminster West and Westminster Center

Students at Westminster West School are excited about the new raised bed gardens that their parents and community members constructed for them. The K-3rd graders generated a wish list together of what they’re dreaming of growing. Then they went to work mapping their own ideas.

Second and third graders participated in similar brainstorming and mapping activities at the Westminster Center School. The stormy weather made us have to retreat to the cover of the classroom for some of this activity, but you can see that the rain held off at the Westminster West School! Maps in both schools were drawn approximately to scale, giving the  students an opportunity to think about the dimensions of their gardens as they planned.

I have been an elementary teacher at the Westminster Center School for 30 years. For most of those years, I maintained a garden as part of my teaching curriculum resource. Now I am the Garden Coordinator for all of the Westminster Center School classrooms.
