Grant’s Gecko Garden is an “outdoor laboratory” funded by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) with oversight from the science lab coordinator and assisted by dedicated teachers, parent room parent representatives and volunteers.
The goal of Gecko Garden is to provide students with a hands-on, standards based curriculum in a school-wide project that connects students with their environment and promotes good nutrition. For years, the garden has been a source of enjoyment for all grade levels as well as being an integral part of the Mission Hills Garden Club’s annual May garden tour.
The relevance of the garden continues to grow as new ways to integrate it into our curriculum take root. Come sow the future with us!
