Which Schools Have Had Gardens? How are Schools Using School Gardens?
Several ICCSD schools have had gardens. See a list below. Each garden is unique in the way it got started, the people who lead garden project, and how the food is used at the school. With school construction, changing leadership or other factors, some schools have discontinued their garden. If you see a school missing from this list, please let us know.
