Did you know there is a garden at Joe Michell School? FJMS volunteers work with teachers and students to plant, care for, learn about, and taste different plants throughout the school year. It’s an awesome opportunity for our kids to get outside and learn to love and care for our planet.
The garden program wouldn’t be possible without our awesome volunteers, lead by our garden director Joelle Cook, and the support of our JMS teachers and our community. If you would like to volunteer to help with the school garden, please email our volunteer director. You must be fully cleared through the district.
Our garden is also supported by donations from our community! If you would like to donate directly to the garden, check out our School Garden Amazon Wish List.
A very special thanks to a local nonprofit, Fertile GroundWorks, for helping us keep our garden growing and thriving.
Students helped plant winter veggies, tasted pumpkin, pomegranates, and figs, and learned about decomposition
