White Rock North School

Outdoor Learning Center

We have student gardens where the children can harvest their food for lunch, as well as livestock animals that the children care for. Students learn to weed, turn soil, and add compost to prepare garden beds for spring planting. Sixth graders design and map out a raised 5 x 5 garden bed to plant. Students research Texas growing seasons and select plants. Later students learn to harvest and study nutrition, meal planning, and budgeting!
