An ACMS PTO Project
Thanks to a healthy and productive relationship between parents and teachers at ArborCreek Montessori School this project has come to fruition.
The purpose of this project is to build raised-bed gardens in our school playground as a hands-on means of understanding lessons learned in the classroom, and use produce from the gardens in the school’s daily lunch menu. Garden to Table project is a great addition to compliment our existing hot lunch at ArborCreek prepared by a full-time chef.
