What we grow in the Skyview Elementary Harmony Garden
We grow food. We promote good nutrition by planting, tending, harvesting and eating organic fruit, vegetables and herbs.
We grow citizens. We connect children to the natural world and create environmental stewards.
We grow character. We learn leadership, responsibility, and respect when we work in the garden.
We grow practical gardening skills. We learn the nuts and bolts of growing a garden.
We grow beauty. We enjoy our peaceful, beautiful garden as it relaxes our bodies, inspires our minds, fills our senses and ignites our creativity and imagination.
We grow academics and arts. We study biology, ecology, mathematics, music and natural history in our garden classroom.
We grow stories. We develop a “sense of place” as we build a garden that reflects who we are as individuals, as a school and as residents of Dallas.
We grow community. We create positive relationships among students, staff, parents and neighbors when we work together.
