Emerson Elementary School Garden; Salt Lake City, UT

Spring 2013 has been busy getting ready for the growing season.  This year VODA’s been involved with Emerson Elementary in Salt Lake City to develop a new school garden.  Starting in January we’ve been meeting with teachers and parents to craft a plan for the first phase of the school’s new garden.  With curriculum and summer-time maintenance involved, school gardens can be a big asset, but also a big challenge for a school.   Check out the photos of their build day, Earth Day 2013:
