Raider Garden

Raider Garden is our school garden where we grow a wide variety of vegetables year around.  During the fall and winter we raise collards, cabbage, lettuce, turnips, broccoli, and cauliflower.  During the summer we grow tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, and a variety of bean species.  The produce is harvested and sold to facility and staff of the district, as well as community members.  The produce left over is then donated to local non-profits.  The Raider Garden is an excellent tool to teach students about plants.
