Washington Park Elementary School

Washington Park Elementary School is our third site. It is managed by Mrs. Marie Brown’s 3rd Grade STEAM Class. Her students are also Junior Master Gardeners. Activities with the raised beds go towards their JMG certification as well as STEAM concepts. We installed and planted two beds here on March 23, 2017, as well as started the renovation of an older raised bed. Curly kale, red sails lettuce, and Bonnie hybrid bell sweet pepper plus were installed.

In addition to these raised vegetable beds, this STEAM/JMG group has their own wildlife food plot and koi pond.
