Battle Academy Garden Club
Welcome to the Garden Club Homepage! The 2012-2013 Garden Club is up and running with 43 Third Graders signed up, our largest group yet!! Students along with Mrs. Kean and Mrs. Chapin are working on our gardening skills, science content knowledge, and how to pick and try new healthy snacks.
Our Harvest already from our meeting on Wednesday September 19!! We will cook and puree to bake with at our next meeting at the beginning of October.

The Garden Club started in the Spring of 2009. Third Graders meet biweekly after school to learn about gardening, healthy eating, and caring for our school garden on the Battle Academy rooftop. The first spring, the Garden Club had over 30 members. This year we have 43 members! Kids are discovering their love for the outdoors, working with their hands, and making a difference in the way their school looks.

Special Project Spring 2011
Isaac Duncan, a local Sculptor, worked with our club to create a piece of art for the rooftop. We worked through sessions on sculpture, how to plan for a piece, and creating models. The piece was installed April 2011.
