The Palos Verdes School Gardens Outdoor Classroom program, taught by PVSG garden educators, seeks to encourage students and teachers to consider the school garden as an extension of the traditional classroom rather than an extracurricular activity. The Outdoor Classroom is seen as a living laboratory where lessons are tied to common core curriculum standards, encourage inquiry-based learning, provide hands-on experiential learning opportunities and support next generation science standards. As part of their grade level experience, students have opportunity to collaborate with their peers, write and draw what they experience in their garden journals, taste seasonal and local produce, plant and tend to their school garden beds and develop an understanding of what is needed to become environmental stewards of the future. Each class will visit the garden six times for 30 minutes each lesson - and the garden will be open Wednesdays at lunch for "drop in" gardeners.
