We have been working with Borton Elementary since the spring of 2010. Borton Elementary has a large, beautiful campus with a large vegetable garden, several small vegetable and flower gardens scattered around the campus, and a 2 acre native desert garden and desert tortoise habitat. They have a chicken coop, rainwater harvesting features, and a wood- fired adobe oven. Boston is certified to serve food from their garden in the cafeteria and will want help running related activities and events. They have a dedicate outdoor education teacher who coordinates the gardening and ecology programs with teachers. Boston will be participating in the Green Academy this year. Check out the videos in the link below for a glimpse of the teachers and students at the school in action in the main vegetable and desert gardens.
