Educators & Schools With Growing Dome Greenhouse Classrooms

When we asked how the gardening program has affected the student’s daily lives, Caitlin Lynch recalled a specific student who grew up in the city with no family background in gardening. This student found a love for something he would have otherwise never experienced. Now he has his whole family gardening and growing plants together.

Cooke City might be a town of only 140 residents, but there is nothing small about it. Located between Yellowstone National Park and the Beartooth Mountains in hardiness zone 4a, this quaint school is no stranger to big mountain weather. In fact, Cooke City has been referred to as the snowiest town in Montana, averaging 207 inches of snow per year. So you can imagine the disbelief had by many when Lara Belice, Cooke City School’s only teacher, poised the idea of year-round gardening.
