Washington Youth Garden

This year Mary McLaud Bethune Day Academy is GOING GREEN! This is the theme for their project-based learning for the year and in every classroom, students are learning how to be more environmentally aware. They have also spent the first two months of school creating original music videos to share the message with the wider community. Check out these 5th graders promote healthy eating!

The raised garden beds you can see by the school entrance were collaboratively installed this past spring as part of the Washington Youth Garden’s Garden Science program. While our program focuses most intensively on one-grade level, school gardens offer meaningful learning opportunities to the whole school community.
