Welcome to the CDC Garden

May 24, 2016

Our five-acre urban farm provides food for the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel and serves as a classroom for our agriculture classes, but it’s not the only place where crops are grown on campus.

Our Child Development Center (CDC) has its own special garden, tucked into a corner of the playground. It is here that students learn how to plant and sow a variety of fresh vegetables year-round.

In addition to teaching students how to care for a garden, we’re also able to expand these little ones’ palates to numerous raw vegetables. We also teach students how to make things like kale chips, using ingredients from the crops they grow in the garden.
