Box Gardens get straight A’s from kids, parents, and teachers.

In 2013, Miss Potter worked closely with teachers at the Six Mile Charter Academy setting up a new project — an outdoor garden classroom.

Over the summer, the school expanded its fifth grade square foot garden box project from five containers in the parking lot to 10 boxes in a designated fenced section of the property, creating Six Mile’s first hands-on outdoor environmental classroom.

In the beginning of the project, a few kids were excited about what they might be able to eat from the garden, but most were leery of the idea. By the end of the year they were fighting over who got the tomatoes.
