The Schwenksville Elementary Garden Club was formed with the intention of planning and designing a revitalized landscape and supporting ongoing maintenance for the school grounds that would reflect the pride we have in our school and community. Through this endeavor, we will assist to monitor and maintain a safe outdoor space for the children to play and socialize.
The Garden Club will assist to supplement educational programs and activities for the students, encouraging environmental stewardship and a connection with nature. We support sustainable practices and encourage children and their families to reduce waste, reuse, and recycle materials whenever possible.
In order to promote a strong link between school and home, the Garden Club will encourage parents and families to participate in outdoor and gardening activities, assisting their children to implement lessons learned at home whenever possible.
We will strive to identify and utilize valuable resources and expertise within our school families, staff, and community.
