• Welcome to Mill Road School Garden
     
     
    I Love Gardens
     
     
    The Mill Road School Garden is an outdoor classroom for Red Hook's Elementary School students. Its purpose is to teach children about growing and enjoying nutritious foods, while also reinforcing academics through hands-on activities. Core subjects like Math, Science, Social Studies and ELA are woven into every lesson. Garden educators and classroom teachers work together to develop garden curriculum that reinforces lessons taught in the classroom. Lessons in the garden include not only horticulture, composting and sustainability, but also map making, creature studies, cooking, problem solving, life cycles and more!  Visitors are welcome in the garden; classes are held Tuesday through Friday in the Fall and Spring. Reach out to your child's teacher if you are interested in coming to a garden class as a volunteer. We'd love to have you!
