Seed to Table
Our long-term vision is to create and sustain an organic garden and landscape that is wholly integrated into the school’s curriculumand lunch program. Using organic and biodynamic (grown according to Rudolf Steiner’s indications) farming methods, we now sell produce at the farmer’s market in downtown Phoenix and at a seasonal weekly market on campus. Our long term vision includes an adjacent classroom kitchen adjacent to the garden which will be used to teach children how to prepare seasonal fruits and vegetables. A primary kitchen and outdoor dining facility will allow children and teachers to have meals together, then participate in the clean-up process, which includes recycling and composting. Experiences in the kitchen and garden foster a better understanding of how the natural world sustains us, and promote the environmental and social well being of our school community.
