The College Hill Learning Garden is our own education and demonstration garden which contains a range of features designed to teach local students about how they can help cities transition to ecologically friendly water, food, energy, and waste systems. The site contains dozens of interactive features, including solar panels, a composting toilet, rain gardens, vegetable planters, and more. The site’s unique curriculum was codesigned with the site’s physical landscape.
Beginning in April of 2016, the site will be open to class field trips for students Kindergarten through 5th grade. Field trips generally last one to two hours and are free to any public, private, or charter school. The curriculum is based on the following topics, and classes are encouraged to come for the full series of field trips over the course of a school year:
