Here at Vanderburg Elementary School, we have a school garden. The students typically spend time after school to learn about gardening. The students have the opportunity to learn about plants, soil, growing a garden, and composting. In our garden we have vegetables, flowers, herbs, lemon trees, and a new pomegranate tree. In the past we have planted strawberries, which make the birds quite happy. 

This is an after school Club For 5th graders, which is available during Fall and Spring. The Garden has also been used for Science Lessons, such as our Kindergarteners taking a science walk in the Fall to view living and non-living Items. 

In November of 2023, we hosted our first annual, Garden Life is Beautiful.The event replaced our previous Salad and Salsa Night. This is a yearly fundraiser and fun family Event, which includes, planting, an art show (Led by Mrs. Sterling), Healthy Snacks, Healthy Exercises (Led by Mr. Pippin), and Listening to our Vanderburg Choir (Led by Mrs. Rivera). We hope that you will save the date as soon as we get the planning started for the upcoming year. Our garden is funded solely on fundraisers and our supportive community. We appreciate our families and community, which has kept our garden program open for over twenty years.
