TEECS school garden, named Green Pride, is maintained by the Green Teams with help from family volunteers over the summer months. Students and team leaders use material from TEECS’ compost to fertilize the soil and water from TEECS’ rain barrel to keep everything growing.
In the future, we hope to have a green house built around the garden, so that we can harvest all year long.
We have had a few harvests over the last couple of years. We even held a tomato tasting with tomatoes from our garden and a local farm. Students voted for TEECS’ tomatoes as the best tasting!
