DMS Biodynamic Garden

Students are introduced to our three acre biodynamic garden as well as to the practice of gardening in a simple manner; they begin working the soil, building compost, and planting, as well as benefiting and participating in the harvest. The students further their involvement through food preparation and organizing a small market on campus as well as off-site at local farmers markets. Repeating the work over the years gives them insight into the spirit of plants and crop rotation. When, during summer months, outdoor work becomes difficult within the classroom setting, the students participate in the planning and preparation of the soon to come growing seasons. They will learn and discuss proper tool use and care and spend time becoming familiar with the subtle seasonal changes that occur here in Phoenix.
