Growing gardens at Stratton School
Stratton School has expanded the garden program to include a grow dome, allowing the program to run through all but the coldest months.
“The goal of the garden program is to provide a sustainable, alternative food experience for students and faculty that encourages hands-on learning, health, and well-being at Eustis School,” Wuori said. “Stratton School wants all students to leave Stratton with the knowledge of food choice and the importance of community through understanding local resources.” –

“This project has been built on a concrete pier foundation having a wood superstructure. The 18’ Dome was specially designed to provide healthy, behavioral and therapeutic support to mentally challenged children otherwise struggling to cope in public school settings.”
Nonprofit brings agriculture to kids
Growing Community Now recently visited the students at Enos Garcia Elementary School for a hands-on lesson in gardening.
“Enos Garcia Elementary School is growing potatoes, carrots, kale, tomatoes, red beans, corn, garlic, and gladiolas in its outdoor garden. The school also has a growing dome, which can allow for winter harvests. “That also expands the teacher’s classroom space,” said Cain.”
