THE LYONS FARMERS
Outdoor learning for students of Lyons Farm Elementary School
ABOUT THE LYONS FARMERS
Our school focuses on five core values—exploration, joy, rigor, justice, and growth. These core values guide the school’s work and vision while pushing each student to become curious learners and thoughtful citizens.
With these core values as our guiding principles, the aim of The Lyons Farmers' School Garden is to provide the school, students, and community with an outdoor learning resource to support curriculum areas and promote gardening, creativity, and environmental awareness. Our garden will connect students to the world of plants, nurturing delight and curiosity while inspiring an appreciation and sense of stewardship of the local environment. Students will take part in “hands on learning” about sustainable food, organic gardening techniques, biodiversity, and healthy lifestyles. The Lyons Farmers School Garden will be a creative space that beautifies the school grounds. It will provide a gathering space and landscape so the students may come together and respectfully connect to each other in a safe, natural, and inspiring environment for the purpose of sharing, learning, and building a sense of community gardening.
